 Our Description

 

Scott Hahn
Mike Aquilina

 

There are no "self-made" success stories in the spiritual life. No do-it-yourself kits for aspiring saints.

That's why Living the Mysteries is ideal for a family member, friend, or fellow parishioner who recently received the sacraments of initiation - baptism, confirmation, and the Eucharist. That's why it's perfect for a lifelong Catholic, too.

The early Church had a process in which a teacher guided seekers through stages of inquiry and purification, culminating in a final phase called "mystagogy" - MIST-a-go-gee - "the revelation of the mysteries."

Now eight of the early Church's greatest teachers can be your guides as Living the Mysteries presents the wisdom and insights of:

  • St. Ambrose
  • St. Augustine
  • St. Basil
  • St. Clemente of Alexandria
  • St. Cyril of Jerusalem
  • St. Gregory of Nyssa
  • St. John Chrysostom
  • St. Leo the Great

Designed as a devotional - and more - for the fifty days between Easter and Pentacost, Living the Mysteries is a rich spiritual resource valuable any time of the year. Each day features:

  • A passage from the Church's great teachers that focuses on a relevant point of the mystical or moral life
  • A plan with practical applications for letting that reading inspire your prayer and actions throughout the day

You will treasure these timeless lessons on gaining eternal life.

Scott Hahn and Mike Aquilina are the founders and trustees of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology (www.salvationhistory.com) and have co-hosted several series on the Eternal Word Television Network. Each has written extensively on Catholic doctrine, history, and devotion.

This item received 5 stars overall. Easter Season devotional with the Early Church Fathers

Scott Hahn and Mike Aquilina should need no introduction, especially if you have read any of my other reviews. Both have written thousands of pages on Catholic doctrine and devotion. Living the Mysteries is intended to be read after Easter as it is a series of reflections or devotions over 50 days. However, one would benefit from reading it at any point in the Church's calendar, as we are all unfinished Christians.
