I am so excited to have published my new work of the meditations from The School of Jesus Crucified. You can find it HERE at my Lulu Store. But don’t go click just yet!
I want to get this book into the hands of as many seminarians as I can, but I can’t do this alone! I need your help!
I am starting with 4 seminaries: Conception Seminary in MO, the Scots College in Rome, the Venerable English College in Rome, and the Pontifical North American College in Rome. You can find more out HERE where you can donate to this project!
The final goal, for now, is $5000. This will provide this book of meditations to more than 500 seminarians!!! But we wouldn’t want to stop there!! The more generous you are the more seminarians to whom I can provide this book!
On the book: it provides 31 days of meditations on the Passion of Christ written by a Passionist priest in the mid-19th century. It gives a point of meditation, then three further points, ending with the particular fruit that can be drawn from the virtues of Christ and an example from the lives of the Saints as an encouragement for our own lives.
We need to return to the attested reality that devotion to the Passion is a daily necessity for the spiritual life. So many Saints have given witness to this. That’s the genius of 31 days of meditations. In a sense, it’s a perennial number. The meditations aren’t tied to a liturgical season, but rather provide 4+ weeks of meditations that the Christian reader can dive into regularly and many times throughout the liturgical year.
That being said, I encourage you to provide yourself with a copy to grow in the discipline of meditation daily on the Passion during this coming Lenten season, so that it can take root. And then, please prayerfully consider helping me. I am so excited and hopeful for this project!
