The Mystical City of God in a Year

The Mystical City of God in a Year

By Fr. Edward Looney

What do we know about Jesus and Mary? For starters, what the evangelists recorded in the gospels. Throughout Church history, mystics have received visions of the life of Jesus and Mary and recorded them as biographies. One such mystic was Venerable Maria of Agreda who authored The Mystical City of God, a four volume book totaling more than 2,000 pages. It's a daunting task to read, but Marian theologian Fr. Edward Looney has partnered with TAN Books to read it in a year. Join him as he reads and provides reflections daily.
