The words of Our Lord in Saint Luke's Gospel, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" were meant for all people of all times and places.
Yet how often in our modern world of comfort and convenience are these challenging words of Our Lord forgotten, along with all concern for eternal destiny, even by Christians? Now, more than ever, Catholics need a sure guide to steer them along the true path of the Gospel.
True Classic Finally available on CD
The Imitation of Christ, by the saintly Thomas à Kempis, speaks to true Christian souls of all generations, reminding them of the shortness of time and the length of eternity. For 500 years this timeless work has been a powerful tool for the sanctification of countless Catholic souls.
Since its publication in 1418, The Imitation of Christ has been second in popularity only to the Bible with Catholics and Christians of all creeds. The late Fr. John Hardon, S.J. said of the Imitation, "Its basic theme is that, since Jesus Christ is true God and true man, by imitating Christ as man, the Christian becomes more like Christ who is God.
An important part of the spirituality of many saints, the Imitation was the sole spiritual reading of the youthful Saint Therese, the Little Flower, who loved it so much she knew it by heart. The famous theologian and spiritual writer Father Garrigou-Lagrange said of the universal appeal of the Imitation, "The true mysticism of which it speaks is accessible to all, if they are willing to follow the way of humility, the cross, continual prayer, and docility to the Holy Spirit.
The tremendous fruits of the wisdom contained in the Imitation are well within the reach of every truly Catholic soul, and this newly re-mastered audio version lets you enjoy this indispensable guide at home, at work, or even as you drive.
