Product Description

•••••
Originally published in Latin in 1616, this is one of five devotional writings of Cardinal Robert Bellarmine (1542–1621), the Italian Jesuit and important Counter–Reformation figure. This book will clarify some of the reasons Bellarmine was also highly esteemed as a spiritual director and why all five of his books enjoyed long–lasting popularity. Bellarmine draws widely on Scripture, especially from St. Paul, and easily and aptly quotes from the Fathers of the Church, especially St. Augustine. On the Eternal Happiness of the Saints reveals Bellarmine’s sympathetic understanding of human nature and his eloquent descriptions of heaven—where, to use one of his own images, “We shall enter into a great sea of divine and eternal joy, which will fill us within and without, and surrounds us on all sides.”
