A Spiritual Biography of Blessed Rafael Arnaiz Baron
  • By Gonzalo Maria Fernandez
  • By Gonzalo Maria Fernndez
  • By Hugh McCaffery
Bl. Rafael Arnaiz Baron's life was extraordinary by any standards. Set amid the tumult of the Spanish Civil War, this spiritual biography recounts the efforts of a fervent young Spanish aristocrat to come to grips with his artistic talent, his intense personality and, above all, his unquenchable passion for God. Trained in art and architecture, Rafael longed to be a Trappist but was obliged repeatedly by war and illness to withdraw and then try again. His intensively personal reflections form the basis of this biography of a man intent on giving his life to God despite all obstacles. At the young age of twenty-seven, he died in the infirmary of the Abbey of San Isidro, less than five months after his fourth entrance."
