A famous book based on the theme of founding one's whole spiritual life on the lessons we learn from the Passion and Death of Jesus. Includes 31 meditations on different aspects of the Passion. Each meditation has 3 points, followed by a holy resolution to be taken and an example from the life of a Saint.
The Passion of Christ is thus for us the school of sanctity; it is the foundation of all sacramental life, the foundation of the Church, and the foundation of the entire spiritual life. No one knows this better than the Passionist Order, of whom Fr. Ignatius Carsidoni of the Side of Jesus, the author of The School of Jesus Crucified: The Lessons of Calvary in Daily Catholic Life, was a member. Take heed from the lessons of this great exponent of the Passionists' charism of proclaiming suffering united with Christ as the entirety of the Christian life.
The book also has many extras -- the Five Holy Wounds, visits to a crucifix, Mary Queen of Dolors, How to assist well at Mass, and more! Impr. 403 pgs, PB
