HOLINESS OF LIFE
Publisher: To be had in Kindle E-Book:
The good Franciscan Doctor of the Church St. Bonaventure composed “Holiness of Life” as a manual for the Poor Clares. Writing clearly, practically, and movingly, he outlines central themes of Christian spirituality, moving from the purgative method (self-wisdom, repentance, humility) throughout the illuminative method (prayer, meditation at the Passion) to arrive eventually at an outline of union with God, the summation of all wants. More than 200 citations and allusions to Scripture and the Fathers demonstrate Bonaventure’s deep synthesis of Christian theological thought even in a brief work designed to be accessible to any reader.
