(Palm Sunday – April 1)
With the completion of Laetare Sunday this week, we are on the backside of Lent but there are still over two weeks to go before Easter!
If you haven’t been doing the spiritual “body-building” you need to do during the season, you can still renew your efforts for the next two weeks.
Here are some suggestions for same-day shipping on Lenten reading. Go ahead and take 15% off of our Lenten Overstock:
The Dolorous Passion
Sister Emmerich’s account of the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ, while faithful to the Bible, is heart-rending, edifying and surprising because of its intimate detail. Based on the visions of this great mystic, The Dolorous Passion recounts in incredible detail the horrendous sufferings undergone by our Saviour in His (it would seem) superhumanly heroic act of Redemption. Illuminating in its description of Mary’s participation in the sufferings of her Son, this book gives the reader a poignant understanding of why Our Lady is sometimes called our “Co-Redemptrix.” The Dolorous Passion is a singular book that conveys a lasting impression of the terrible agony of Our Lord’s sufferings for us. Here is a book that will melt a heart of stone!
