The Practice of Christian and Religious Perfection
Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This second volume continues the classic treatise of Father Rodriguez. This work is based on the material which he collected for his spiritual exhortations to his brethren, and published at the request of his superiors. Although the book thus written was primarily intended for the use of his religious brethren, yet he destined it also for the profit and edification of other religious and of laypersons in the world. Of set purpose it avoids the loftier flights of mysticism and all abstruse speculation. It is a book of practical instructions on all the virtues which perfect the Christian life, whether lived in the cloister or in the world. It became popular at once, and remained in use till the era of Vatican II by all classes of Christians, particularly by those who had entered religious life. More than twenty-five editions of the original Spanish have been issued, besides extracts and abridgements.
