Product Description

The End of the Present World and the Mysteries of the Future Life

  by Fr. Charles Arminjon
336 pp. paperback

 “Reading this book was one of the greatest graces of my life!” – St. Therese of Lisieux

In the late nineteenth century, Father Charles Arminjon, a priest from the mountains of southeastern France, assembled his flock in the town cathedral to preach a series of conferences to help them turn their thoughts away from this life’s mean material affairs and toward the next life’s glorious spiritual reward. His wise and uncompromising words deepened in them the spirit of recollection that all Christians must have: the abiding conviction that heavenly aims, not temporal enthusiasms, must guide everything we think, say and do. Although some of Father Arminjon’s references about purgatory are more severe than the customary teaching of the Church, his lessons for preparing for eternal life are invaluable. Jesus commands us to be ever-watchful for his return and ever-mindful that we have no lasting city on earth. This book is an invaluable aid to inculcating in your spirit that heavenly orientation without which true human happiness cannot be found...in this world or in the next.

  1. The End of the Present World

    Posted by Regina Green on 28th Jun 2018

    I eagerly await reading this book. If St. Therese called it " one of the greatest graces of my life" then how could it not be so for all of us? Of course, the Sisters included a wonderful prayer card which I use as my book marker and it came promptly. The Sisters have the best Carmelite and other religious items anywhere to be found. God Bless you all, dear Sisters.
