Canterbury, St. Anselm of: Book of Meditations and Prayers. V1. 19-May-2012

Full title: St. Anselm's Book of Meditations and Prayers

Anselm of Canterbury (Aosta c. 1033 – Canterbury 21 April 1109), was a Benedictine monk, a philosopher, and a prelate of the Church who held the office of Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 to 1109. Called the founder of scholasticism, he is famous as the originator of the ontological argument for the existence of God. He was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 1720 by Pope Clement XI. On 21 April 1909, 800 years after his death, Pope Pius X issued an encyclical "Communium Rerum", praising Anselm, his ecclesiastical career, and his writings. His symbol in hagiography is the ship, representing the spiritual independence of the church.

Description from www.ccel.org:
St. Anselm's Book of Meditations and Prayers features twenty-one meditations, which focus on several contrasting concepts within the Christian faith. For example, St. Anselm compares the sinner's fears and the sinner's hopes by meditating on the nature of sin, which separates us from God, and the grace of God, which draws sinners back to salvation. St. Anselm also addresses the sinner's past and the sinner's future by meditating on the nature of the wicked soul, which finds a life of misery, and the nature of the good soul, upon which God bestows glory. Finally, St. Anselm explores the paradox of the Incarnation, meditating on the humanity of Christ by which Christ interacts with his people, and the godliness of Christ, by which Christ redeems his people. St. Anselm's deep desire to understand his faith is evidence in this collection of keenly insightful meditations.
