The Mystical City of God by Venerable Mary of Agreda
A highly successful abridgment of the monumental 2,676-page 4 vol. life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as seen in mystic vision by Ven. Mary of Agreda (1602-1665). This book overflows with enthralling information about Our Lord and Our Lady, about the creation of the world, the meaning of the Apocalypse, Lucifer's rebellion, the location of hell, the hidden life of Jesus, etc. Reveals that St Joseph ate meat, but Our Lord and Our Lady seldom did. Makes Christ's hidden life really come alive. Acclaimed by the Popes, cardinals and theologians - one of the greatest Catholic books ever.
"I have not revealed these mysteries in the primitive Church, because they are so great, that the faithful would have been lost in the contemplation and admiration of them at a time when it was more necessary to establish firmly the law of grace and of the Gospel. Although all mysteries of religion are in perfect harmony with each other, yet human ignorance might have suffered recoil and doubt at their magnitude, when faith in the Incarnation and Redemption and the precepts of the new law of the Gospel were yet in their beginnings.
On this same account the person of the incarnate Word said to his disciples at the last supper: "Many things have I to say to you; but you are not yet disposed to recieve them" (John 6, 12). These words He addressed to all the world, for it was not yet capable of giving full obedience to the law of grace and full assent to the faith in the Son, much less was it prepared to be introduced into the mysteries of his Mother. But now, mankind has greater need for this manifestation, and this necessity urges Me to disregard their evil disposition. And if men would now seek to please Me by reverencing, by living, and studying the wonders, which are intimately connected with this Mother of Piety, and if they would all begin to solicit her intercession from their whole heart, the world would find some relief. I will not longer withhold from men this mystical City of refuge; describe and delineate it to them, as far as thy shortcomings allow. I do not intend that thy descriptions and declarations of the life of the Blessed Virgin shall be mere opinions or contemplations, but reliable truth. They that have ears to hear, let them hear. Let those who thirst come to the living waters and leave the dried-out cisterns; let those that are seeking for the light, follow it to the end. Thus speaks the Lord God Almighty!" (Vo1 1., The Mystical City of God: Life of the Virgin Mother of God, manifested to Sister Mary of Jesus of Agreda)
What are sacramentals ?
Sacramentals are powerful and blessed objects that can be a means to express your faith in God and they are instruments of grace that God uses to draw us closer to Him and to work through our lives to protect and sanctify us. Sacramentals come in different forms like rosaries, medals, pictures, statues of saints, scapulars ,crucifixes, incense, salt, water, oil etc. Many saints have spoken on their thoughts on the strength of sacramentals. Such as St. Teresa: “From long experience I have learned that there is nothing like holy water to put devils to flight and prevent them from coming back again. They also flee from the Cross, but return, so holy water must have great virtue."
When a Sacramental is blessed they have the power to bring down God's graces upon the user, they protect one from diabolical attacks of satan and the evil spirits by driving them away, they have the power to bring a soul to conversion and lead them to the sacraments, they can bring spiritual and physical healing to a soul, they can remove venial sins, give you the grace to fight temptations, deliver you from many dangers and much more.
Where do sacramentals get their power from?
"For well-disposed members of the faithful, the liturgy of the sacraments and sacramentals sanctifies almost every event of their lives with the divine grace which flows from the Paschal mystery of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Christ. From this source all sacraments and sacramentals draw their power."
We must continue to have recourse to the abundant graces granted through such powerful sacramentals as the Holy Rosary, the Scapular of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, the Miraculous Medal, the Saint Benedict Medal and so many others that have found favor with God. In these dawning years of the 21st century, in days of increasing compromise and capitulation that come from embracing the world, we must protect our authentic catholic patrimony. A significant and invaluable part of that patrimony is found in catholic sacramentals and since they are blessed objects they should be treated with reverence.
So use them to sanctify and protect your life, those of your family and friends, your loved ones and help lead souls to the kingdom of heaven.
