The Life of Our Life-The Nine Months The Life of Our Lord in the Womb by Fr Henry James Coleridge

share on Facebook


In this book we find the most convincing proof of the truth that the revelations of God to us must be measured, not by the multitude of words in which they are conveyed, but by the importance of the matters of which they speak. The reader will be astonished at the small bulk of the materials on which this remarkable work is founded and will find it easy and enjoyable to read.

From the Author's Preface:

Our Lord's Life in the womb of His Blessed Mother is a part of His Infinite condescension which has more than one characteristic of its own, and which calls for a corresponding and particular devotion on our part. As the present volume reaches from the Annunciation itself to the Eve of the Nativity, it covers the whole of this unborn Life of our Lord. It is enough for devout Christians that there exists this separate portion of our Lord's human existence, the period of His greatest humiliation and self-abasement. It is only natural that this should at once attract our adoring homage, and that those who give themselves to the special devotion which it suggests should find themselves consoled and assisted in a wonderful degree by the practices and contemplations which belong to that devotion.
