Get to Know Jesus Your Savior May 5, 2006
I am currently engaged in my second reading of this masterful work. Father Garrigou-Lagrange's prayerful insight into the Savior's interior life comes from a rich, scholarly contemplation of the Hypostatic Union, and how the divine nature ministers grace to human nature for the sublime cause of our salvation, with both natures cooperating in flawless unison through the divine Person of the Word.
The discussion on meritorious works, and how a Christian's merit derives from Christ's infinite merit, especially helped clear up misunderstandings which came about during my Protestant formation. The chapter on the Eucharist shows how Jesus' sacrifice draws us into the Trinitarian communion of charity by the total offering of Himself (in the fullness of both His human and divine natures) to the Father, redeeming fallen man, saving us and bringing us--via His Sacred Humanity--into the Holy of Holies! This book lays down the unshakeable basis of the Mass as Sacrifice, as the ultimate expression of God's self-giving love for sinful man, and as man's only, reasonable response to God.
Just a wonderful, theologically solid read, faithful to the Church's doctrine; a work that inspires further contemplation and adoration of God for His miraculous work of salvation. Your heart will be bursting with prayers of profound thanksgiving, penance and worship as you read this book, expressions of gratitude which are never enough to match the supreme graciousness and generosity of God.
Theologians and authors like Father Garrigou-Lagrange make me so very glad and so very thankful that I converted to the Roman Catholic Faith!
