The Beggar’s Banquet: A Personal Retreat on Christ, His Mother, the Spiritual Life, and the Saints
Regis Martin’s The Beggar’s Banquet is a feast of reflections on God’s love. In thirteen discourses on Christ, His Mother, the spiritual life, and the saints, the author rekindles the familiar Gospel message with ever-deepening wonder, whetting the appetite for that which alone truly satisfies: the Bread of life.
Utilizing the profound truths of the writings of popes, mystics, and theologians, along with great works of literature and poetry, The Beggar’s Banquet ponders man’s search for meaning through suffering, death, and the hope for eternal life. Intended as a personal retreat, The Beggar’s Banquet is ideal for the Advent and Lenten seasons.
