The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ
by Anne Catherine Emmerich
This book helped inspire Mel Gibson to make the movie, "The Passion of the Christ." Faithful to the Bible story of the Passion and death of Jesus, it fills in many details and is edifying and inspiring beyond belief; plus, it is surprising and heart-rending. It will melt a heart of stone. This book is the best on the Passion we have seen. It is also wonderful on the Blessed Mother's role in our redemption. Includes a short biography of Sr. Emmerich. A great, great book for the whole family!

The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ CD
According to John
Christopher Walker

 "There is no greater love than this: To lay down your life for your friends." John 15:13

Opening with this antiphon, sung beautifully by a cappella choir, this new setting of the Passion is powerful, tender and haunting, evoking all the pathos and drama of Jesus' suffering and death. The inspiration for it, the composer explains, came from his desire to give added meaning and power to the Passion reading on Good Friday, not only to contrast with the passion reading on Palm/Passion Sunday, but also because it precedes the Veneration of the Cross.

Reverent and emotionally immediate, the music is a very appropriate setting for St. John's telling of the story. It's simple without being spare, dramatic without being melodramatic. Arranged with parts for organ, SATB choir, narrator, Jesus, Pilate, Peter, a maid, a slave and a temple guard, Walker's Passion also involves the assembly, which sings easily memorized refrains that reflects on key moments in the Passion.

This innovative setting gives a new voice to a familiar text, placing the narrator's spoken part over keyboard accompaniment and giving dramatic crowd part s to the choir. Jesus sings in contrast to Pilate, who speaks. Based on three short melodies, the part of Jesus (included in the full score) can be learned quickly by a priest or deacon. All parts, in fact, are relatively easy to learn and perform, accessible to the resources of a good parish choir.

The beautifully recorded CD reveals the dramatic potential of this music. Divided into 17 tracks, one for each of the main sequences of the Passion, it makes an excellent preparation and rehearsal tool, in addition to being inspirational listening for Lent and any time we meditate on the sorrowful mysteries of the Passion.

From well-known Marian author and research professor, Dr. Courtenay Bartholomew, comes the companion book to Mel Gibson's important film "The Passion of the Christ."

"The Passion of the Christ and His Mother" is perhaps the most detailed, inspiring, and moving account of the Passion you will ever read. The author expands on the film and reproduces the unspeakable anguish of Our Lord during the last 20 hours (the movie covers the last 12 hours) of His life.

Based on revelations from the Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich and others, the book provides further insight and detail such as:

A full account of the Last Supper
A detailed description of the agony of Mary
The medical aspects of the Crucifixion
The history of the Shroud of Turin
A theological explanation of the why the Passion was necessary
And much more

Both Mel Gibson's film and Professor Bartholomew's companion book are sure to spark controversy and debate but above all fuel the fires of faith for years to come. 96 pages

The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ
prepared and with notes by George R. Szews

This book shows how several readers can proclaim the Passion on Palm Sunday or Good Friday and do it well. Matthew is not Mark is not Luke is not John. Each account of the passion is unique. Thatís the starting point in this careful and pastoral approach. Participation and understanding by the entire assembly will increase when everyone clearly hears each facet of the story on which our lives are founded. Rather than simply dividing the Passion into the parts of Narrator, Single Speaker, Christ and Crowd, this book allows the evangelistís understanding of the Passion to be heard and pondered. An introduction and specific commentary preceding each Passion account is included. Here youíll find proclamation tips and suggestions for musical refrains, acclamations and hymns. The cover is suitable for use in front of the assembly and, inside, the size of the type, the use of sense lines and the arrangement of the page allows for ease of proclamation by readers. The text is exactly as given in the revised lectionary.

We suggest that parishes purchase five copies per scheduled liturgy: one copy for each of the three readers, one copy for the presider and one copy for the music minister.

Paperback, 8 1/2 x 11, 48 pages. (Item #93107) $7.00

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of John
by Donald Senior, C.P.

With this volume on John the Passion series concludes its study of the meaning of Jesus' death in each of the Gospels. But though last, it is certainly not less important or a repetition of the other Gospels. In fact, John's portrayal of the death is as distinctive and unique as the rest of this "maverick" Gospel.

Father Senior explores how the rest of the Gospel prepares for the Passion story. He then gives a detailed analysis of the Passion narrative itself. Finally, he explores the theological motifs that dominate the Passion narrative. With scholarly finesse and deep pastoral awareness, he makes John's vibrant message of the Passion speak to our life and times.

". . . should be purchased now and read before John's passion is solemnly proclaimed next Good Friday."

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke
by Donald Senior, C.P.

The recent resurgence of scholarship on Luke's Gospel is due, in part, to this Gospel's special appeal for an age in which questions of economic justice, peace, and the prophetic role of the Churches questions all important in Luke are so urgent.

Father Senior's exegesis yields a strong sense of what Luke intended to communicate to his readers and, to some degree, what may have been the circumstances that shaped his message. He reveals the Luke who presents Jesus as a champion of the poor and marginalized, whose message of justice is proclaimed with a sharp prophetic edge.

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark
by Donald Senior, C.P.

Which came first: a coherent Passion story or the Gospel of Mark? Contemporary biblical scholarship is divided over this issue of how, exactly, the Passion story developed.

Whatever the shape of the story prior to Mark, it must have been imprinted with Christian experience as well as historical memory. Mark, in turn, felt free to retell and reinterpret that story for his own time and place. The Passion of Jesus was not only a story from the past but also, in the sufferings and hopes of the Christians of Mark's time, a living reality of the present.

The readers of this insightful work will find that the Passion of Jesus as told by Mark continues to hold meaning for the present. Paperback, 176 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew
by Donald Senior, C.P.

The Word of the cross is a living word, crying out for reinterpretation as life takes new shape and expression. Reinterpreting the Gospel was particularly compelling for Matthew's church because his Christians lived in a time of profound transition. The Passion of Jesus, then, was not simply a story of suffering out of the past but a point of identification for the Christians of Matthew's own time.

For us twentieth-century Christians, who also know the peculiar suffering and hope of living in an age that is both dying and being born, the Passion of Jesus according to Matthew has special meaning. Paperback, 200 pages, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Praying the Passion/Living the Gospel
by Malcolm Cornwell, C.P.; Foreword by Donald Senior, C.P.

This book has one purpose: to assist adult believers in praying the gospel message, with special emphasis on the narratives of Christ's passion. Each concise reflection invites the reader/pray-er to grow in gospel knowledge and spiritual insight. The reflections would also serve well as a source for a Holy Week retreat or for fruitful preaching during Holy Week.

Malcolm Cornwell draws on both the power of his community charism and his strong interest in biblical/liturgical spirituality to represent a new and prayerful perspective on the timeless stories of the Lord's passion and death. Practical suggestions for prayer and guided reflection follow each chapter, and a short bibliography points the way to further reading and reflection. Paperback, 80 pages, 5 3/8" x 8 1/4"
