Product Description

  • The Mystical City of God (Abridged)
  • Beautifully-crafted abridgment
  • Contains stunning insight about Our Lady's life, Our Lord, and more
  • A must-read


A highly successful abridgment of the monumental 2,676-page, 4-vol. life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as seen in mystic vision by Ven. Mary of Agreda (1602-1665). This book overflows with enthralling information about Our Lord and Our Lady, about the creation of the world, the meaning of the Apocalypse, Lucifer's rebellion, the location of Hell, the hidden life of Jesus, etc.

Venerable Mary saw in ecstasy all the events recorded here. Later, Our Lady told her to write them down in a book - the result is The Mystical City of God, acclaimed by Popes, cardinals and theologians, a book which has inspired the laity and clergy for over 300 years and which has gone into sixty editions in various languages.

More than just the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, this book also contains information about the creation of the world, the meaning of the Apocalypse, Lucifer's rebellion, the location of Hell, the hidden life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, intimate details about Our Lord's life, and many other enthralling topics.

The translator, Father George J. Blatter, a Chicago priest, first read the book in German and was so impressed that he learned Spanish in order to make a proper translation into English. His first edition appeared in 1912, ten years after he had started work.

Mystical City of God

Review: This book gives you "behind the scenes" views and insights about the life of Mary, which according to Maria Agreda, Our Lady asked that not much be written about her in the Bible. The accounts of Mary's life are all backed up by Scripture, but more in detail. Reading it deepened my Catholic faith. The translation is somewhat stilted, but not bad. Highly recommend this book! Someone please post in a review if you know where the Spanish version can be bought.

City of God

Review: I purchased the 4 volumes in 1987. Unfortunately it took 14 years for me to complete. I had to reread portions several times. Well worth the effort!!

city of god

Review: Great book, only problem is trying to find it in Spanish.

In awe

Review: I have read the 4-volume set of Mystical City of God. It is a must read for everyone. There is so much love in these pages. You learn the truth. Every little detail. I can't find the words to describe how enriched I feel having read the 4 volume set.


Review: [...]I bought the book for me and before I could finish it, I knew I had to get another for the Deacon of my church. He wanted to read it during Lent and you came through for me!! [...]Second , This is a book, even as large as it is, that you will read again and again. It is truely awesome. It is so full of information that if you miss a single line you have missed a LOT. The introductory part is long but should be read all the way through. The first chapter jumps right in and grabs your attention. The awesome power of GOD grabs your very soul and you will never be the same again. You will see God,creation, your role in life and why you were created and the virtues of the Virgin Mary in a whole new light. You won't want to put it down. Not only would I recommend it to a friend, I would reommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about GOD, has doubts, or just out right disbelieves! The contents of this book will put life, death and what happpens afterwards in perspective and will humble you before the GREATNESS and POWER of GOD. You WILL feel the love of GOD in every page. This is an "Oh my GOD, I didn't know that!" book.
