Mystical City of God, Volume 1

(4.9 stars; 29 reviews)

The Mystical City of God is a book written in the 17th-century by the Franciscan nun, Venerable Mary of Jesus of Ágreda.

According to María de Ágreda, the book was to a considerable extent dictated to her by the Blessed Virgin Mary and regarded the life of the Virgin Mary and the divine plan for creation and the salvation of souls. The work alternates between descriptions of the Trinity, the Virgin Mary's life, and the spiritual guidance she provides to the author, by whom her words were reproduced for the spiritual benefit and growth of the reader. The book describes at length the various virtues, and how the reader should live in order to see them reflected in their own life, with the Virgin Mary as their model for sanctity. The work has the Imprimatur of several Popes and Bishops and appeals primarily to those who believe in “private revelation” and the sanctity of Mary.

Volume one deals with the Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. "The Sacramental Mysteries wrought by the Most High in the Queen of Heaven from the time of her Immaculate Conception until the Incarnation of the Word in her virginal womb, and how much merit she herself acquired through Divine Grace by profiting from the favors conferred upon her during those first fifteen years of her life." - Summary by Wikipedia and Introduction (20 hr 1 min)

Exquisite


(5 stars)

Such rich content; this is my 2nd time through. As usual Ann Boulais does a wonderful reading. I'm indebted to her for her love of Catholicism. She does for me what I can't; I have migraines, & they're aggravated by computer lighting. So, more hats off to her.

Great book!!

Thanks Ann Boulais for having made this book available in audio. Great job, God bless you. I've had the book for many years waiting for an opportunity to read it, but it has never come to be. In my morning commute to work, while driving I have enjoyed this wonderful book greatly. It has giving me a more in depth understanding of the role of our blessed mother in the history of salvation. Now I feel as if I have a more intimate knowledge of the blessed Virgin Mary.

FANTASTIC
