These sermons {which the following pages contain in a much abbreviated form) weredelivered, partly in England in various places and at various times, partly inN ew York inthe Lent of IQ12, and finally, as a complete course, in the church of S. Silvestro-in-C apite, in Rome, in theL ent of 1913. Some of the ideas presented in this book have already been set out in a former volume entitled Christ in the Church and a few in the meditations upon theS even Words, in another volume, but in altogether other connexions. The author thought it better, therefore, to risk repetition rather than incoherency in the present set of considerations. It is hoped that the repetitions are comparatively few.

It went to the heart of the matter: Since Jesus, the Divine Spouse is both Divine and Human, His Bride, the Church is both Divine and Human. Since Christ was persecuted, His Church will be, too.

For, as he himself tells us in effect, he found everywhere in that created nature which he knew so well, anomaly piled on anomaly and paradox on paradox, and he knew no more of theology than its simpler and more explicit statements. We can be certain therefore-we who understand that the mysteries of nature are, after all, within the limited circle of created life, while the mysteries of grace run up into the supreme Mystery of the eternal and uncreated Life of God-we can be certain that, if nature is mysterious and paradoxical, grace will be incalculably more mysterious.

Talk about Paradoxes of Catholicism (Classic Reprint)

The only other book of Father Benson's that I've read was his apocalyptic novel "Lord of he World," so I didn't know he was a first-rate apologist. The theme of this short book is one familiar to many Chesterton readers: that people constantly accuse Catholicism of being too extreme in one way AND in its opposite way (for example, too much about following rules, but also willing to forgive anyone any sin at all if n confession). He treats a number of these themes in the first part of the book and ends with a a section devoted to the Seven Last Words of Christ showing that each of them is equally contradictory. The reason, he said, is that the Church is Christ's Church, and Christ is contradictory. His style is clear and often amusing. easy to follow without being glib. I love apologetics by Knox and Lunn and Chesterton (C.S. Lewis is also in their tradition) and this is just as fine. I am eager to read his other books and essays.
JUST DO IT
A book for any Christian in search of the Church. It is compelling, logical, and deep in faith. Written more than 100 years ago, his thoughts hold true even today. Msgr Robert Hugh Benson was a convert to the Catholic Church, and like Cardinal Newman before him, he realized that Jesus built only one Church. Read his other books e.g. The Religion of the Plain Man, and your mind will be opened to other areas of the Deposit of Faith given the Church by her founder. If more Christians read these books, and other books written by converts to the Catholic Church, we would be heading closer to the one Church that Jesus prayed for.
ARE
Lots of valuable thoughts and reflections... was well worth a few months of intermittent reading for me. I'd like to begin it over now that I've finished ( is that a paradox!) and reflect on the various points again. The book is a bit dated. Here and there a section may seem out of place with today's understanding.... but perhaps that is part of the paradox of the book...

This book is difficult to review. I believe I am glad I read it. It is very well composed, organised logically and uses expressive language. However, if you're a non-believer, it fails to convince. The argument for the belief that the Catholic (and ONLY the Catholic church Benson - a convert to Catholicism - constantly reminds us) is part of the Devine Plan rests totally on just that - belief. So, if you choose to believe, you will enjoy this book. If not, you may still find it interesting to see how the Jesuit type arguments are Promulgated.

This is a thought provoking book. Whether for a Catholic young in his faith, or a more experienced one, these sermon/essays are informative and inspiring.

I enjoyed reading the book and I could relate to much of what Father Benson wrote. It went to the heart of the matter: Since Jesus, the Divine Spouse is both Divine and Human, His Bride, the Church is both Divine and Human. Since Christ was persecuted, His Church will be, too. I can relate very much to this theme and experienced much of it in my own life: Catholics are always caught in a catch-22; if they do one thing, people complain. If they do a different thing, people will complain that they did something different and that they should go back and do the other thing people complained about.

(watch - in regards to going from the outside world and into the cloister: Friedrich Nietzsche 2.0 will come and complain again when Christians go back into the cloisters; right now, the problem is that Christians are proselytizing, according to the enemies of the Church; they don't like it when Christians are inside the cloister or outside in the world; yet, even the problem with this is the assumption that Christians who talk about their Faith are always telling everyone about their Faith. For some reason, the assumption is that Christians are always talking about their Faith and there are never any distinctions made between Christians who do and Christians who don't. A Christian who talks about their Faith for the first time will be treated as harshly as the Christian who has spoken about his Faith since he was twelve. However, there is an assumption that Christians who speak about their Faith often are mean, judgmental, sanctimonious, merciless, harsh, and rude. This is not true. There are many Christians who talk about their Faith who are loving, kind, sweet, gentle, compassionate, generous, and merciful, but the media and much of modern society doesn't care about that either even though they'll tell you that Christians need to act like Christians, yet for some reason Christians who act like Christians never make headline news. The same people who say that they want Christians to act like Christians are the same people who will always talk about the sinners in the Church, but never about Her Saints).

If I go into a cloister,
People tell me to get out into the world.
If I go out into the world,
People tell me to go back into the cloister.
If I use a cat-o'-nine-tails,
People call me a fanatic.
If I say a few prayers instead,
People call me complacent.
If I behave in a holy manner,
People accuse me of insincerity.
If I behave in an unholy manner,
People accuse me of hypocrisy or of not taking my Faith seriously.
Yet, if I take my Faith seriously,
People will attack me for taking my Faith seriously.
You can't win in the eyes of the world, but you've already won in the eyes of Christ.

All this being said, it reminds me of being united with the Crucified Spouse and Savior on the Cross, and that's a plus. :)
very interesting book
