Using only classic Catholic Commentaries and the Scriptures, Fr. James Groenings, S.J. demonstrates the historical context and spiritual significance of each episode of the Passion of Jesus. From the Agony in the Garden through Our Lord's death and burial, every page of this book is replete with valuable lessons and a superabundance of material for reflection. Drawing from both the Old and New Testaments, Fr. Groenings is able to illustrate the meaning of every event and episode, showing how to apply these lessons to our lives. Far from being a merely an act of unspeakable brutality, the Passion is shown to be the greatest proof of God's love and mercy to each of us.
