You might not have heard of Ignatius Carsidoni, known in religious life as Father Ignatius of the Side of Christ, but this little volume should inspire you with his faith and work. The 19th-century Italian Passionist priest’s writings were instrumental in providing impetus to the Oxford Movement that helped resurrect the Catholic faith in England. The meditations in this book, excerpted and adapted from his work The School of Jesus Christ Crucified, read like a 31-station Via Dolorosa that walk you through the entire Passion experience. These are solid spiritual exercises to enrich your Holy Week this year and your entire Lenten journey in future years.
