The centenary of the death of Blessed Columba Marmion will be in 2023. 'Columba Marmion did not set out to be a great spiritual writer, but when the talks he had given to his monks were adapted and put into book form, they spread like wildfire across the world and became hugely influential.' In this fascinating book, published in time to commemorate the centenary of Blessed Columba Marmion's death in 2023, Columba McCann explores Marmion's spiritual teachings and highlights key moments in his life that influenced his writing from his early childhood in Dublin to his later years as a Benedictine, Abbot of Maredsous in Belgium. This wonderful introduction to this inspirational Benedictine's life and work examines his influential writing and highlights how his spiritual teaching is relevant today. He had a strong desire to found a Benedictine monastery in Ireland but this was never realised in his lifetime. In 1927, four years after his death, Maredsous made a foundation in Murroe, Co. Limerick, now Glenstal Abbey. Written in a clear accessible style, this book emphasises the breadth and a confidence in Marmion's teaching which puts the reader in touch with the deep spiritual sources of Christian life and at the same time suggesting a certain serene freedom as to how each person drinks from those sources.
