There's a multitude of Lenten meditation books but only one that's packed with the wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas. Journey through Lent with the Church's greatest philosopher-theologian. This unrivaled spiritual master will guide you in encountering Our Lord and experiencing the type of fruitful Lent that he often experienced.

You will relish this magnificent treasury of sixty-three of Aquinas's Scripture-based sermons specially selected for the holy season. From Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday, you'll learn how to deepen your prayer life, conquer temptation, resist the evils incurred by sin, and equip yourself for spiritual battle.

In the straightforward, logical language for which he is famous, Aquinas shows you how to detach yourself from the things of this world and refocus on the things above, reflecting on Our Lord and Our Lady as models.

You will learn the importance of fasting to the preservation of chastity and how to perform acts that will increase your humility and purity. As you contemplate the example of Our Lord on the Cross, Aquinas will help you weed out vices and cultivate virtues to prepare for the joys of Heaven.

Let the Angelic Doctor assist you in overcoming idleness and fostering a deeper devotion with stirring reflections on:

  • Ways in which the Blood of Jesus is precious and salvific
  • The confidence we should place in Our Divine Friend, even in sickness, suffering, and pain
  • How Our Lady suffered and how she personifies charity, patience, humility, obedience, and detachment
  • Why the pain suffered by Our Lord was the greatest pain possible in this life
  • Jesus' fourfold humiliation on the Cross -- and the fourfold exaltation it merited Him
  • How Christ manifested all virtues on the Cross, the "pulpit from which He taught all mankind"

Also included are forgotten or little-known traditional feast days, such as the feast of the Holy Lance and the Nails of Our Lord and the feast of the Holy Winding Sheet.
