• Meditations for Lent

In the simple, non-technical language he used for preaching, St. Thomas shows how to detach yourself from the things of this world and refocus on things above, using as models the penitential examples of Our Lord and Our Lady. He also offers detailed practical advice on how to avoid temptation, weed out vices, and cultivate virtues. To wit:

Conditions to be observed when we pray -- patterned on Christs own instructions and example Five evils we incur through sin The spiritual usefulness of physical acts of humility Idleness: Why Our Lord condemned it so strongly The two purposes of fasting How Christ exemplified all virtues on the cross, the pulpit from which He taught all mankind The true meaning of Christs warning to be watchful -- different from simply waiting Why the pain suffered by Our Lord was the greatest pain possible in this life Factors that will determine whether our heavenly reward will be lesser or greater Why Our Lord went down to Limbo. Four things we may learn from it Why souls in Hell are not freed by the Passion of Christ Christs fourfold humiliation on the Cross -- and the fourfold exaltation it merited Him The six ways in which the Blood of Christ is precious Four ways Our Lady suffered bitterly in the Passion Christs Passion as the perfect example of charity, patience, humility, obedience, and detachment St. Thomas provides 63 Scripture-based Lenten meditations, one for each day from Septuagesima Sunday through Holy Saturday. Averaging two pages in length, these sermons are perfect for silent meditation at any time.
