Whether you have come to this site on purpose, or merely stumbled upon it, you have certainly found the pearl of great price (Mt. 13:46). You would do well to acquire it, read and meditate upon it, and treasure it.

The Mystical City of God, as it was named shortly after its first publication in 1670, is the History and Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It was revealed to a humble Spanish Franciscan nun, Ven. Mary of Jesus, in the mid-17th century in her convent in the little village of Ágreda. The book she wrote is not merely her own contemplations, conjectures or opinions; on the contrary, it is the result of infused divine knowledge, innumerable intellectual visions, and was written under the direct supervision and dictation of the Virgin Mary herself. Ven. Mary wrote these revelations down and submitted them to her religious superiors, who not only approved of them but had to command her to write the book in order to overcome her humility.

But why a book about Mary, the Mother of Jesus? What is so important about Her? Simply put, God chose Her from all eternity to be the Mother of His Onlybegotten Son, and if Mary had not given Her fiat, if She had not said yes, then we would not have our Savior Jesus Christ and would therefore have no chance of salvation.

This book is not only the History and Life of Mary our loving Mother, it is also considered by many the best Life of Christ outside of the Gospels. And while you can learn more about this book from the information on this site, there is simply no possible way you can experience the excellence of this book until you read it.

There may be little time before the punishment of God falls upon this sick and perverted world, a severe chastisement prophesied in Holy Scriptures and in The Mystical City of God. I believe this worldwide punishment shall occur primarily in order to preserve the innocence of youth, allowing them to grow up in a world which helps them gain eternal happiness rather than purposefully hindering it. After all, God did not create this world to be a playground for the wicked.

At any rate, none of us knows how much time God has allotted to us in order to work out our salvation in fear and trembling (Philip. 2:12). I urge you to take the time to read The Mystical City of God, which if done with humility and sincerity your soul will find itself enkindled with a spiritual ardor and desire to love God and save your soul and the souls of others.

Read the book. I guarantee you will be happy you did.
