Item description for The Mystical City of God: A Popular Abridgement of the Divine History and Life of the Virgin Mother of God by Mary Agreda, Maria & Ven Mary Of Agreda...

Overview
The Mystical City of God by Venerable Mother Mary of Jesus of Agreda (1602-1665) is a monumental four-volume, 2,676-page history of the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as revealed by Our Lady to this 17th-century Spanish nun. Venerable Mary saw in ecstasy all the events recorded here. Later, Our Lady told her to write them down in a book-the result is The Mystical City of God, acclaimed by Popes, cardinals and theologians, a book which has inspired the laity and the clergy for over 300 years and which has gone into sixty editions in various languages. More than just the life, of the Blessed Virgin Mary, this book also contains information about the creation of the world, the meaning of the Apocalypse, Lucifer's rebellion, the location of Hell, the hidden life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, intimate details about Our Lord's life, and many other enthralling topics. The translator, Father George J. Blatter, a Chicago priest, first read the book in German and was so impressed that he learned Spanish in order to make a proper translation into English. His first edition appeared in 1912, ten years after he had started work. The purpose of this popular abridgment is to bring to an even wider readership the sublime truths found in The Mystical City of God.

More About Mary Agreda, Maria & Ven Mary Of Agreda


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Venerable Mother Mary of Jesus of Agreda, also known as the Blue Nun, was born in 1602 at Agreda, Spain. She possessed a considerable amount of divine knowledge even at a very young age, and consequently was confirmed at just four years old. When she was twenty-five, Mary was instituted as president of a Franciscan nunnery that her mother left behind after the older woman's death. She wrote fourteen books throughout her lifetime, among them the four-volume Mystical City of God, and also served as spiritual advisor to King Philip IV of Spain. It has also been said that her writings were inspirational for Mel Gibson as he produced his film The Passion of the Christ, released in 2004. Mother Mary of Jesus died in 1665 at the age of sixty-three, and was declared venerable by Pope Clement X less than ten years later.

City of God  Oct 22, 2007
Mystical City of God: A Popular Abridgement (Mystical City of God)The testament in this book about the life of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, contains vivid images that will leave you spell-bound. The crucifiction scene from Mel Gibson's Passion of Christ was based on the imagery in this book. You will read and re-read this book many times...

The Life of Mary and Jesus  Apr 1, 2007
Despite Mary relating her experiences to the author, Mary of Agreda, you can't help but feel that Mary is speaking directly to you. It is a touching story of humility and sanctity. You can look at it as filling in the spaces that the Gospels have left out. All of it is very believable.
Eah chapter, and they are short, ends with words from Mary to the author, instructing her in the ways to increase her love of God and Mary and how to imitate their lives. Because of the great number of pages, you won't read it in a day, and in a way, that's good. The short chapters let you read a little at a time and let you set it aside to contemplate what Mary has said. You will come away with a new understanding of Mary and Jesus.
 
Amazing  Nov 5, 2006
This is a truly beautiful book, providing background details on the life of the Holy Virgin Mary and the creation of the universe. The most amazing part about this book is that the details make so much sense and are so logical, yet are so intricate and colorful, that it is impossible to think of it as a work of fiction by a devout nun. I have not yet completed the book, but when you read enough of City of God and contemplate its beauty, you will find that it is in every single way supportive of Christian doctrine, and in every single way a masterpiece that was Divinely inspired. A worthy read indeed.
