The Friendship of Christ Catholic Audiobook CD Set
Listen to a sample chapter!
In The Friendship of Christ the great Msgr. Robert Hugh Benson shows us how to achieve a deeper relationship with God the Son. We all have an innate need for friendship; in this timeless work, this need is raised to the supernatural, illustrating the greatest friendship one could ever possess and how to nurture it. The book shows how Christ works in the soul of those who seek Him, in His public life, and in the historical examples given in the Gospels. “There is one supreme friendship to which all human friendship points,” writes Benson, “one ideal Friend in whom we find, perfect and complete, that for which we look in the faces of our human lovers.” In the Part I, the author shows how one enters into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through the purgative and illuminative ways. In Part II, he discusses several modes in which Christ offers us His friendship here and now, such as in the Eucharist, in the Church, in the priest, in the saint, in the sinner, in the average person, and in the sufferer. In Part III, Benson recalls how Jesus Christ proved the depth of His friendship with us by willingly accepting death on the cross for our sake, and how He raises His friends to everlasting life with Him.
