[Hardcover] Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange interprets St. Thomas on the Incarnation of God the Son, by which humankind is saved. He treats the Incarnation's motive, the hypostatic union, and its effects. He... More > discusses such difficult problems as Christ's freedom and impeccability, the intrinsically infinite value of His merits and satisfaction, His predestination and ours, and the reconciliation of His Passion's extreme sorrow with the supreme happiness He experienced in the summit of His soul. All is referred to the plenitude of His grace. This plenitude caused the beatific vision in the summit of His soul while also prompting His ardent love as priest and victim, so that He willed to be overwhelmed with grief and to die a perfect holocaust. In all, Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange upholds Christ's unity inasmuch as He is one personal Being, although He has two really distinct and infinitely different natures. Christ's Person is the sole principle of all His theandric operations. At the book's end is a compendium on Mariology.< Less
Beatitude: A Commentary on St. Thomas' Theological Summa, Ia IIae, qq. 1-54 (Hardcover) By Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange
Hardcover: $29.77

"Morality," writes Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange, "is the science of imitating God." In this exploration of St. Thomas's account of the moral life, he begins from the angelic doctor's... More > teaching on the human person as the image of God, and proceeds from there to describe how, by growth in virtue, one is conformed more and more to God's likeness. One becomes an imitator of God -- and in this, one finds one's "happiness" (beatitudo). Happiness, for the Christian tradition as expounded by St. Thomas, can be found here on earth by imitating God and so living now the life of heaven -- even amidst great pain and suffering. This is no easy happiness; but it is a happiness for which the human person was created, a happiness ultimately to be consummated in the beatific vision of the Lord, for which one shall have been prepared by imitating God in earthly life.< Less

The Trinity and God the Creator (Hardcover) By Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange
Hardcover: $31.77
Prints in 3-5 business days
[Hardcover] Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange turns to God the Trinity, who created the heavens and the earth, and who is the object of that contemplative vision of God to which all human beings are called and... More > which is their ultimate sanctification. In his characteristically-ordered style, Garrigou-Lagrange offers his interpretation of St. Thomas by expounding, explaining, and comparing the teaching of the angelic doctor to that of preceding and subsequent theologians. In particular, Garrigou-Lagrange depicts St. Thomas as fulfilling the foundation laid by St. Augustine: the persons must be treated in distinction but not in separation, for it is in their mutual relations that they are known as persons. He lays special emphasis also on the call of all humans to contemplative holiness. The exposition of the Trinity is a beginning of the journey of contemplation by which a man or woman enters the life of God to be reformed according to the likeness of the Trinity in whose image he or she was first created, body and soul.< Less
