More About Robert Bellarmine
St. Robert Bellarmine was born Roberto Bellarmino in 1542 at Montepulciano, Italy. A Jesuit Cardinal and Doctor of the Church, he was born of noble patronage and became a Roman novice in 1560 though the influence of his mother. After his ordination, he rapidly gained popularity as a professor and for his preaching, which drew in both Catholics and Protestants. He was also significantly active in the Counter-Reformation, and composed several works of literature, including The Mind\'s Ascent to God, The Art of Dying Well, The Seven Words on the Cross, and Hell and Its Torments. St. Bellarmine died on the seventeenth of September, 1621, at Rome, and was canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1930.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Art Of Dying Well: (or, How to Be a Saint, Now and Forever)?
A book that we should all aspire to follow. Jul 22, 2008
Far from being the gloomy Ars moriendi one might expect based on the title, this classic work provides readers with everyday, ordinary advice on how to lead moral, upright, Christian lives and thereby find peace and comfort in life and death. A review of this work would not do it adequate justice for its power and historical significance as well.
Solid spirituality and theology Nov 29, 2007
As a Catholic priest, I have found this to be an excellent book; it is rich in Sacred Scripture and in the teachings of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church and is a wonderful explanation of Catholic spirituality. St. Robert Bellarmine is very clear in his presentation of how we should live if we are to be ready for eternity.
