Overview

2014 Reprint of 1950 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The gifted Trappist, Thomas Merton, here gives a sympathetic interpretation of the interior and mystical experiences of St. Lutgarde, a thirteenth-century Trappist. Merton gives to St. Lutgarde wider significance than is normally provided her by pointing out that she was the forerunner of St. Margaret Mary and the institution of the Feast of the Sacred Heart. This claim is based upon her mystical vision of the pierced Heart of the Savior. The story of St. Lutgarde as related by Merton abounds in mystical visions, stigmata and miracles. For Catholic readers interested in hagiography the name of Merton may elicit the interest of a wider group.
