The Spiritual Life of Cardinal Merry del Val
$20.00 – $30.00
Cardinal Merry del Val, the Secretary of State to St. Pius X was born into an aristocratic Anglo-Spanish family, the son of a diplomat and groomed for all the best things in this world. Instead, he worked for all the best things of the next world.
Cardinal del Val was known for his great humility, his spirituality, and absolute love of Jesus Christ. It is for this reason that Pope St. Pius X picked him for his secretary of state at a very young age. This is a truly amazing work, not just for an account of the saintly Cardinal, but as a work of spiritual reading and devotion.
The Mediatrix Press edition is the first reprint in 40 years. It has adhered to the format of the original, adding cream paper and dropcaps (those giant letters at the beginning of chapters in older books).

Lovely book and very edifying. I am so moved by this little biography of the good Cardinal. I pray the Litary of Humility daily and is wonderful to know the life of its author. Thanks for making it available.
