This book should be a great Catholic possession. Written by one of the most learned of modern mystics, it elaborates for the faithful the strange and mighty power of the Mase. The mystery of the great drama of sacrificial death for love is made a living experience to the listening soul. In his preface to this second edition, the author pleads for the awakening of the soul to the supreme experience of the ""School of Silence"" in the Liturgy. This book is exquisite in its poetic to scored themes.
