Synopsis

A LITTLE BOOK OF ETERNAL WISDOM BLESSED HENRY SUSO It is superfluous to enlarge here on the intrinsic merits of Blessed Henry Suso's work. For over five hundred years it has enjoyed undiminished popularity, as at once a religious and literary masterpiece. Such a work speaks too eloquently for itself; it is its own best praise, its own best commentary. It can be placed next to the "Homilies" of Saint Bernard, and the "Imitation of Christ" by Thomas à Kempis. Blessed Henry Suso, a priest and mystic of the Order of Saint Dominic lived a life of wonderful labours and sufferings, and died in the Fourteenth century with a reputation for sanctity which the Church has solemnly confirmed. The mutual love of God and man, which is his principal theme, gives warmth and colour to his style. He contributed much to the formation of good prose, especially by giving new shades of meaning to words employed to describe inner sensations. PUBLISHER: CATHOLIC WAY PUBLISHING
