The Life of Mary As Seen by the Mystics

by Raphael Brown

250 pp. paperback

"In all periods the Church has had in her bosom souls to whom it pleases God to communicate extraordinary lights of which He allows some rays to fall onto the community of the faithful,” writes Dom Prosper Guéranger. Generations of devout Catholics, including many learned theologians and writers, have derived great spiritual benefits from a careful reading of the private revelations here compiled, those of Ven. Anne Catherine Emmerich and Ven. Mary of Agreda, primarily, along with those of St. Bridget of Sweden and St. Elizabeth of Schoenau. From the birth of Mary to her Coronation in Heaven, this book provides the reader with remarkable insights into the life of Our Lady, and an unmatched depth of understanding of the Holy Family. 

What is also shown with utmost clarity is that Mary is a model of the interior life, and an example of perfect submission to the will of God.  “As we read,” continues Guéranger, “our heart slowly takes fire, our soul feels desires for virtue which it had not hitherto experienced, the mysteries of faith appear more luminous to us, bit by bit the world and its hopes vanish, and the longing for the good things of Heaven, which seemed to have been dozing within us, awakens with new fervor.”

  1. Fantastic Compilation on the Blessed Mother's Life

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Nov 2018

    I am reading this wonderful book now. I am so happy that I purchased this book as it gives me tremendous insight on the Blessed Mother's life and sufferings. I thank the good God that He gave her to us, and this book is a fantastic illustration of how truly blessed we are to have her. It is traditional throughout, as far as I have read, and I'm pleased that the compilation is from such great mystics as Anne Katherine Emmerich and Mary of Agreda, among others. Will really help those who purchase this great book to meditate more fruitfully on the mysteries of the Rosary. The illustrations are very beautiful also. Highly recommend this book to all.
