The Pain of Christ and the Sorrow of God

Product description

The Pain of Christ and the Sorrow of God was written by Fr. Gerald Vann, O.P., who was ordained in 1929 at the remarkable age of twenty-three into the Dominican Order.

Originally published in 1947, this book is comprised of seven chapters marked by originality and striking clarity, Fr. Vann gets under the rind and into the heart of every aspect of Christ's Passion.  

The topics of each chapter dive deep into the meaning of Lent.

What the Agony in the Garden tells us about our own struggles, sorrows, and sins

What Christ's betrayal reveals about the depth of our love, faith, and devotion

How the scourging teaches us to rule our flesh, rather than letting it rule us

How we can replicate the stillness of Mary in our lives

Ways we can prepare for and withstand the Valley of the Shadow of Death

What the difference between the two thieves teaches us about the glory of God

How, through the sorrow of God, the world is renewed

The Pain of Christ and the Sorrow of God
