A veteran professor of literature and composition, Fr. Murray Bodo, O.F.M., gives you the key to unlock the mysteries of mysticism. This series is adapted from his book Mystics: Ten Who Show Us the Ways of God.

Mystics experience God’s presence in tangible and striking ways. As you investigate the original words of women like Thérèse of Lisieux—the beloved saint known as “The Little Flower”—and the modern spirituality of the hermit Robert Lax, you will gain a better understanding of the nature of mystical experiences. Moreover, you will come to see the relevance of mysticism to your personal faith.

After hearing the incredible accounts of these 10 exemplars of Christian spirituality, you will discover new truths about God’s love for humanity. United by their common experiences of God’s presence, these 10 mystics transcend time and place. For Fr. Bodo, their experiences are evidence of God’s enduring contact with humanity, century after century.

  2. Experience God

    Orinio

    … To be able to experience God as I did all of my life and know there are others who did also that are not saints by the church. It is in knowing and being intimate with God that all parts of you and all are one in God your lover.
