It was said that after the Blessed Sacrament, the Lord was most pleased to dwell in the heart and soul of this saint. As a result St. Gertrude the Great (1256-1302) is the only one who has the name “great” in her title.
A classic of Catholic literature, this book records the life and the revelations of St. Gertrude, a German Benedictine nun. In these revelations she is given a clear picture of heaven along with advise for those seeking to advance in the spiritual life.
The revelations are said to be authorized by the Lord himself at the end of the work and are officially recognized by the church.
