Best of all, at the end of your Lenten journey with Mother Mary, you’ll be prepared to experience the Paschal Mystery through the eyes of Mary herself, grieving and rejoicing with her as the events of Holy Week give way to the palpable rising of Christ in your life.
Told accurately and in a manner interesting and intelligible, it actually provides a fuller treatment of the Passion than is found in the Gospels. You see, those Gospels were written for first century readers already familiar with many of the persons, places, parties, and politics that colored events in those long-past days. Not so much modern readers, twenty centuries later! That is why Fr. Ralph Gorman has here crafted for us a single detailed narrative out of the four Gospels, weaving into his narrative relevant Old Testament passages and prophecies, and facts from Jewish and Roman history, laws, beliefs, traditions, and practices, plus helpful first century military, political, geographical, and archaeological information.
Faithful to the Gospels while drawing on the best commentaries on them in English, Latin, French, German, and Italian, these rich pages provide you a refreshing reading of the Gospels supplemented by reliable archaeological, historical, and theological information about the period, places, and persons involved. Plus, you have the benefit of Fr. Gorman’s keen depictions of the Gospel places based on his three years’ residence there.
You can read this book straight through, or one chapter a day as a spiritual reading. Either way, you’ll come to understand better the malice of the crowds, the dismay and confusion of Christ’s friends, and the speed with which the deadly events unfolded. Most of all, you’ll come to grasp anew the depths of Christ’s love for you, awakening in you greater devotion to Him than ever before.
