Christian Perfection and Contemplation is a treatise on the operation of grace in the soul that clearly and skillfully explains the principles of the spiritual life according to St. Thomas Auinas, Sacred Scripture and other traditional Catholic sources. Fr Garrigou-Lagrenge shows us that mystical life, which is true life—and simply the full flowering of the Sanctifying Grace received at Baptism—is something abundantly spoken of in Scripture, especially in the epistles of St. Paul and St. John.

Here he explains

  • The clear distinction between nature and grace
  • How efficacious grace works
  • The meaning of infused contemplation
  • The university of the call to infused contemplation
  • The increased activity of the Holy Ghost in the soul after it has entered the mystical life.
  • The apostolic fruitfulness of the mystical life
  • The absolutely infallible certitude of faith, even in the spiritual darkness of the passive purification
  • The anti-mystical views of the spiritual guides who consider the mystical life to be an extraordinary phenomenon intended for very few, and who thus keep souls in mediocrity.

    This is a book to encourage all souls of good will to persevere in prayer and virtue, in the hope that God will bring them to that state of close union with Himself known as the mystical life, which results in the purifying and inflaming of their own souls by charity and in much greater fruitfulness in their efforts for the salvation of others. This book gives hope to struggling, helping them to see that their spiritual trails do not indicate retrogression, but are in fact the "narrow gate" leading to true life.
