Le père Lagrange et la Vierge Marie
160 pages - sept. 2012
The reputation of Father Marie-Joseph Lagrange is above all based on his exegesis. But this book reveals his Marial spirituality and his devotion to the prayer of the Rosary. Founder of the Biblical School of Jerusalem in 1890, Father Lagrange renovated the interpretation of the Bible in those times, marked by fundamentalism. A Dominican keen to reach the conscience of every human being, he devoted his life to saving souls by combatting rationalism. A man of the Gospel, he made known the Truth that frees men’s souls, albeit with a critical mind. Far from opposing the study of the Word of God in prayer beads, Father Lagrange nourished his faith every day by reflecting on the mysteries of the Rosary. The more deeply he studied the Bible in a scientific manner, the more sharply he felt the need to unite with the Son of Mary in prayer. His writings are a testimony of his intimacy with the immaculate Virgin. The man who proudly called himself a ‘son of Mary’ continues the work of making people love Jesus through his commentaries of the Gospels. Today, the Church is promoting the case for his beatification, for his work in service of the intelligence of the faith. His life and his teachings cast a clear light for the Church now engaged in new evangelization. In this book, Christians will find the delectable knowledge of the Word of God which the Virgin Mary pondered before us and for us, in her heart.
