Good Friday Free Kindle Book


Today's Free Kindle book is Meditations on the Crucifix:They Shall Look Upon Him Whom They Have Pierced.  You'll never look at a crucifix the same again. These meditations are deep, rich and bring the reader powerful insights into this common Catholic sacramental. The reader will grow in their love for this wonderful image and learn to meditate more deeply on Our Lord's Passion.
Originally published in 2004, this book has become a Lenten favorite.  Also available for Kindle.
Why I wrote this:  Sometimes I write with a purpose and other times I write for writing's sake.  During Lent of 2003 I decided to make a Holy Hour everyday spending time in Eucharistic adoration.  Behind the monstrance in the Adoration Chapel was a very beautiful and vivid crucifix.  Each visit I would focus on different aspects of the crucifix.  I would contemplate not only the wounds of Christ but every part I could imagine: His hands, knees, feet, the writing of Pilate and more.  This little book is the fruit of that Lenten Meditation.  
It was first published by a local printer and my wife and I spent evenings in the basement stapling the booklet together.  Now on it's 3rd printing, this beautifully bound meditation will stick with you for years to come.
