With Christ: An Anthology of the Writings of Blessed Columba Marmion
Publication Date: February 15, 2013
With Christ is an anthology of writings from Blessed Marmion's outstanding trilogy: Christ, the Life of the Soul; Christ in His Mysteries; and Christ, the Ideal of the Monk; as well as from his letters in Union with God and personal notes on his own spiritual life--focused on the theme of suffering and sharing in the Passion of Our Lord.
In the words of his editor, Dom Raymund Thibaut, "It is most important to know how to accept suffering; and surely the supreme work of mercy is that difficult science, that delicate art, of teaching men to carry their cross." Dom Thibaud continues, "Wherever Dom Marmion goes, he sheds light; he lends a helping hand; he calms and comforts; he inflames hearts, strengthens wills, and sanctifies souls."
With Christ is a book to be read especially during the great penitential seasons of the liturgical year, and in times of temptation, trial, and loss--here are words that can restore or strengthen confidence, bestow peace, and stabilize the soul in the supreme security of abandonment to God.
