The Spiritual Writings That Became A Handbook For Sanctity
In the late 13th century, God blessed a young cloistered nun with graces so special that she very quickly climbed to incredible heights of sanctity in her sheltered community. Her name was Gertrude of Helfa, (1221-1292), today revered worldwide as St. Gertude the Great.
Through Gertrude, heaven was to reveal many of its greatest secrets.

We’ve gathered a few of these gems for your personal reflection and edification.
