 General Description:

Christ in His Mysteries by Blessed Columba Marmion O.S.B.

Foreword by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR
Intro. by Aidan Nichols, OP

Each year, the Church celebrates the Mysteries of Christ’s birth, life, death, and Resurrection. These are the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, and Easter — and each is the source of a particular grace, each has its own special gift for us.

Christ in His Mysteries is Blessed Columba Marmion’s great meditation on the treasure-house of grace Christ offers to us in the Church’s liturgical year. Writing in the lively, compelling style that made him a favorite of Popes and lay faithful alike, Marmion explains:

• How the Mysteries of Jesus are now our mysteries — springs of living water we are meant to drink from.

• How Christ’s wisdom, His holiness, His strength, are now our wisdom, our holiness, our strength.

• How to acquire special graces during each liturgical season.


This new edition of Christ in His Mysteries features a Foreword by Fr. Benedict Groeschel (a long-time admirer of Blessed Columba Marmion), and an Introduction by Aidan Nichols, OP.

It also features a vibrant new translation that captures all of Marmion's depth and spiritual power while remaining meticulously faithful to the French-language original. Aidan Nichols praises translator Alan Bancroft's work as "felicitous... a supremely natural and fluent translation."


About the Author -
Born in Ireland, Blessed Columba Marmion served for several years as a priest in Dublin before finding a vocation to the monastery. One of the great Catholic authors of the 20th century, his books were translated into eleven languages and sold some 1.5 million copies.

Firmly rooted in the Bible, the Liturgy, and the writings of the Saints and Doctors of the Church, Marmion explores every aspect of Catholic doctrine, with penetrating insight. His writings are marked both by the remarkable clarity of their exposition, and by their keen psychological insight and sensitivity. Many of his admirers believe he will one day not only be canonized, but also declared a Doctor of the Church.


Praise for Christ in His Mysteries -

“Splendid... Powerful... This classic of Christian spirituality can easily serve as an excellent introduction to Columba Marmion. My advice to the members of this generation is to run to the library for Marmion before you succumb to malnutrition. Read Christ in His Mysteries as soon as possible and you will get some idea of what you have been missing and where to find it.”
—Fr. Benedict Groeschel, writing in the Foreword


“In Christ in His Mysteries, Marmion’s insight, as simple as it was brilliant, is that practicing Catholics will draw maximum profit from their meditation on the life of Christ if they contemplate its chief happenings through the lens provided by the Church’s liturgical year. In that year those happenings are celebrated in feasts and seasons. The Liturgy is the way the Church as Bride gazes lovingly — and therefore penetratingly — at her Bridegroom, laying out her understanding of His heart: His purposes, the grand design of the Father which He carried out for our sake... Readers of Christ in His Mysteries have opened to them the theological and spiritual treasures of Catholicism at its best.”
—Aidan Nichols, OP, writing in the Introduction


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.”
—Pope Pius XII


“Always, at each of his pages, one is bathed in a spiritual atmosphere — an atmosphere of prayer. Hence also light, security and peace.”
—Dom Raymond Thibaut


“He makes you touch God.”
—Cardinal Mercier
