There is no subject of meditation more pleasing to God and more profitable to the soul than the Passion of Jesus Christ. It contains in itself all sweetness; it is the remedy for every evil; the food that nourishes the soul. It is continued still in the Blessed Eucharist, and every Mass is a representation and renewal of the Sacred Passion. It is a subject always in season, but especially during the holy time of Lent.
These Meditations deal with some of the main incidents of Our Lord's Holy Passion. They are intended to be begun on Ash Wednesday and to end on Holy Saturday. A few verses of Scripture are suggested to be read each meditation, as furnishing the subject-matter of which it treats.
