Fr. Augustin Baker is famous for his Sancta Sophia, Holy Wisdom, from which this work on contemplation is taken. This work begins by proving that contemplation is for everyone. Indeed the joys of contemplation are a foretaste of the Beatific Vision in Heaven, and our occupation in eternal happiness there. Anyone who wishes to live a life of true prayer is recommended to acquire and study this holy work, and begin on the road to Heaven through contemplation. This work contains much practical advice for all Christians, who wish to truly pray. St. Alphonsus writes: “a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery.” Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: “There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!” We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers. This book is a photographic reprint of the original The original has been inspected and many imperfections in the existing copy have been corrected. At Saint Pius X Press our goal is to remain faithful to the original in both photographic reproductions and in textual reproductions that are reprinted. Photographic reproductions are given a page by page inspection, whereas textual reproductions are proofread to correct any errors in reproduction.
