THE PERFECT BOOK FOR LENT!
Sermons on the Stations of the Cross - The Our Father, Hail Mary, Etc.
by Reverend B. J. Raycroft, A.M.
Impr 1901, 339 pages.
This book starts with approximately six pages of explanation for each of the 14 Stations of the Cross. We cannot do anything better in the way of meditation during the holy season of Lent than consider the many pius suggestions brought to our minds by the Stations of the Cross. These stations picture the most affecting scenes on that painful journey which Jesus made for us that will inspire tears from a story so emotional. After this, the author proceeds to explain the words of The Lord’s Prayer and the Hail Mary. (Quotation from book:” The Hail Mary will convert the savage into a docile child of Christianity“). Finally, there are an additional 180 pages of selected sermons such as: “ Comforter of the afflicted, pray for us”; On scandalous matrimonial alliances; On the perniciousness of conceit; The Folly of worldly desires; On repentance; and many more.
Here is a book that is enjoyable to read and perfect for any time of the year, but especially the holy season of Lent.
