The Passion narratives of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John describe the sufferings of Jesus leading up to his death on the cross. Christ’s death on the Cross is by far the greatest gift of unconditional love ever given to humankind. By studying the Lord’s Passion, the Passion Narratives and the Stations of the Cross, Catholics not only gain a better understanding of the Passion of Christ, but also gain a greater sense of his love. The immensity of Jesus’ love for his people is what carries us through the day. A study of the events of the Passion story as portrayed through Catholic books about the Passion, Passion DVDs and other Catholic resources provide Catholics with a means of embracing this great love and growing closer to God. Include the Passion Prayer
in your daily reflection.
