Meditation on the Passion:

Recently we republished the book entitled Meditation on the Passion. Containing an account of the Passion by a Novice Mistress of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, it was edited by Father Reginald Walsh, OP, first published in 1922, and reprinted seven times during the 1940s and 1950s. The subject of the book is in its title. The sublime mystery of the Redemption is shrouded in the sacrifice Our Lord made with His life on Calvary 2000 years ago. And this doctrine has been proposed to us as a worthy object of reflection by countless teachers in the Church throughout her history.  We republished this book in the traditional way with sewn signatures, in an attractive violet hardcover binding with gold lettering for many years of use.

Among the many subjects proposed by the Church to us for mental prayer, there is none more profitable than the sublime mystery of Calvary. For even where everything is supremely holy—namely, in the actions of Him Who is the way, and the truth, and the life—the Passion is the culmination of sanctity, the highest exercise of virtue, the greatest cause of merit. Hence devout meditation on it produces most abund­ant fruit in souls. And for this reason, Saints and Doctors of the Church—those who are specially enlightened, those who spoke from experience, those who are our best guides in the spiritual life—with one accord praise and glorify it...
A Member of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who, as Mistress of Novices for about thirty years, had gained great experience in the formation of religious as well as in the varied requirements of conventual life, proposed by means of this book to impart to her Sisters the fruit of her own reflections on the Passion, which one so spiritual and enlightened was exceptionally fitted to compile.
As might have been anticipated, the excellence of the work, which she had intended for the use of her Sisters, in course of time became known to several persons, in one or other way connected with the Institute of the Blessed Virgin. And among them, some are of opinion that this treasure should no longer be allowed to remain almost hidden in the cloister. They have represented that outside the convents of the Institute there are many devout souls to whom the Meditation would be most acceptable. In accordance with their suggestion, and in com­pliance with their wish, it is now reprinted...
That the book may continue to be a help to advancement in the spiritual life, and become an abundant source of bless­ings to a still wider circle of readers, is the earnest desire of those who have had to do with its reissue.
