What I’m Reading for Holy Week

April 18, 2011

I did finish the Pope’s new book on Jesus of Nazareth, which was breathtaking! Today I started Caryll Houselander’s The Way of the Cross. I’m only a few pages in, but it’s quite lovely and moving so far. Here’s a little snippet:

All his secrets were out. Every detail of His Passion revealed something more of His character as man – not only His heroism and His majesty but His human necessities, and the human limitations which He deliberately adopted as part of His plan of love in order to be able to indwell us as we are, with our limitations and psychological as well as physical necessities and interdependence on one another. He was not only simulating our humanness outwardly but feeling as we feel; not only feeling His own grief, fear, compassion, need of sympathy, and so on, as man, but ours; not only knowing every nerve and fibre of His own love for us, but that of each one of us for one another.
