“The imposing collection of fifteen volumes which is Life of Love constitutes a mystical testament that is something completely new in the Church. The grandeur of this ‘Life’ is a function of the grandeur of the times. We know that these times are unique; and this ‘Life’ has something of the unique. Marie-Paule knew that Life of Love would consist of fifteen volumes.” (Excerpts from Raoul Auclair’s Preface.)
Volume II – 1958 to 1968
This second volume of Life of Love begins in the Marian Year 1958, the hundredth anniversary of Mary’s apparitions to Bernadette Soubirous in Lourdes, France. For Marie-Paule, this is the beginning of a new era, according to the expression from her spiritual director, Father J.-Armand Veilleux, O.M.I.
This second volume introduces the reader to the trying and difficult nights of the soul, going all the way to the beginnings of the night of the spirit. The soul oscillates between terrible wrenchings and the fulfilling lights and delights of Love.
