Philip Neri Book Description:

Philip Neri (1515-1595) is one of the most lovable and popular of saints, Christian humanist, practical joker and one of the Church's great contemplatives, he had such an impact on the degenerate Rome of his day that he quickly became a leading figure in the recovery of Catholic spirituality and culture that we associate with the Counter Reformation. In the midst of the Roman Renaissance, St. Philip was able to prove by his own example and in the lives of those who followed him that Christianity is the way to true and lasting happiness. His burning love for Christ found visible and tangible expression in the many visions and miracles recorded by those around him. Every evening he gathered his disciples to read and discuss the New Testament and then to pray together silently for half an hour. His aim, as he himself said, was to make people 'saints in their own homes'. Philip Neri: The Fire of Joy is the only major biography of Philip to appear during the 400th anniversary celebrations of the life of the saint. Already a bestseller in Germany, Spain and Italy, it draws on the most recent scholarship to paint a vivid, brilliant portrait of one of the most attractive and inspiring figures of Christianity.

Saint Philip Neri Book Description:

"Rome is to be your Indies," prophesied a saintly monk to St. Philip Neri. So, he moved to Rome, became a priest and proceeded to sanctify that city, and thus the world. He had a tremendous sense of humor, he worked countless miracles and advised everyone from beggars to Popes. Founder of the Oratory, the inspiration of Saints and everyone. For sanctifying Rome, the Church owes him--even to our own time--a debt of unimaginable magnitude.

The Life of St Philip Neri Book Description:

Philip Neri, Il santo amabile, the loveable saint, lived in the most important century for the history of the Catholic faith, and even the modern world. Yet he didn't factor into the great events of that century, albeit he was close to many of the great men active in that age, such as St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Charles Borromeo, St. Pius V, and many other saints and popes. Yet, the reform of the Church or the city of Rome, as well as of the Roman Curia would have been unimaginable were it not for the sanctity of Philip Neri and his great apostolate in Rome. From humble origins, Philip began a life of devotion and prayer, and embodied the expression of St. Paul to "Pray without ceasing." Raised to the priesthood, he began the direction of penitents, fearing neither to approach the poor, tradesmen, nobles or cardinals, and to give them great penances to focus their devotion on Jesus Christ. Sometimes reading these penances, one would scratch their head thinking that this is crazy, yet Philip could read souls and had the gift of prophecy, and he knew exactly how to direct his penitents. He gathered great men to himself, such as Cardinal Baronius, who, living with Philip for a number of years, inspired him to found the Congregation of the Oratory, which can still be found today in many countries. This fantastic book, written by Anne Hope, the author of "The Early Martyrs", is page after page of devotion, sacrifice, and love of Jesus Christ. The distinctive feature of the Mediatrix Press edition is that it is a reprint, not a facsimile of this work, newly scanned and carefully edited. Moreover, footnotes have been added to translate the numerous Italian and Latin quotes found in the text that are not in the original, as well as pictures which are not in the original edition. This marvelous biography of one of Rome's most iconic figures will not only increase the reader's understanding of Rome in the 16th century, but for prayer and devotion.
