Christ, The Ideal of the Monk: Spiritual Conferences on the Monastic and Religious Life
Author: Columba Marmion
Columba Marmion believes that Christian discipleship means imitating Christ the Monk no matter your walk or way of life. Christ is the divine model presented by God himself , the ideal of all holiness. By faith, we accept this holiness into our lives—but we must also allow Christ Jesus to become “the very life of our souls.” This book, an abridged edition of the original, explores how this is possible by examining the writings of St. Paul and St. John in the light of the Gospels and, offering spiritual understanding to any Christian’s religious life.
