I can not recommend this book too highly! This book consists of six Lenten meditations preached by the author, an eloquent speaker and profound thinker, on the subject of the pain of Christ along with a paper he wrote later that developed some of the themes touched on during the course of the meditations. Having personally distributed more than 15 copies of this book to university students and clergy and having discussed it with them I have found that its clairity, depth of spiritual insight and willingness to deal with important subjects in a forthright manner have born much fruit in the lives of those who take up and read this small book. The book, unfortunatly, is rather short; however, this makes it easier for students, or others who are busy to use it.
Vann is definetly my favorite Catholic Author. I've read this book straight through probably around 6 times and everytime I'm amazed at his writing. The theology is awesome. Please check it out.
Excellent for reading and meditation!
