We are grateful to Angelico Press for this reprint of one of the great classics of 20th century, Christ in His Mysteries. Abbot Dom Columba Marmion’s profound reflection on the Mysteries of Christ’s birth, death, Resurrection, and Ascension as presented in the Gospels and the Liturgical Year. In Blessed Marmion’s words, the mysteries that Jesus lived were lived for us. Each of Christ’s mysteries, representing a state of His Sacred Humanity, brings to us a special participation in His Divinity. Advent, Christmas, Holy Week, Paschaltide, the feasts of Corpus Christi and the Sacred Heart—following Christ in this way, uniting ourselves to Him, we share more deeply in His Divinity and His Divine life.
Praised by Pope Pius XII: “[The works of Marmion] are outstanding in the accuracy of their doctrine, the clarity of their style, and the depth and richness of their thought.”
This Angelico Press reprint is only an abridged edition (132 pages) of the original book from Abbot Marmion Christ in His Mysteries. Though it covers the essential, it is our wish that in the future, the complete book of Abbot Marmion will be back in print.
