The Angelic Doctor gives a sermon for each day from Septuagesima Sunday until Holy Saturday, including Ash Wednesday, and the Lenten Ember Days. In the Summa Theologica Saint Thomas asks the question if three in the afternoon is the suitable time for the faster's meal. Indeed he lived in a time when the laws of fasting were more rigorously observed than today. On the Thurs The Angelic Doctor gives a sermon for each day from Septuagesima Sunday until Holy Saturday, including Ash Wednesday, and the Lenten Ember Days. In the Summa Theologica Saint Thomas asks the question if three in the afternoon is the suitable time for the faster's meal. Indeed he lived in a time when the laws of fasting were more rigorously observed than today. On the Thursday after Ash Wednesday, Aquinas explains the three reasons why we fast, during Lent. Anyone who wishes to truly follow the spirit of Lent must meditate on these holy lessons! St. Alphonsus writes: "a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery." Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: "There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!" We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers.

    Wonderfully short, appropriate Lenten meditations related to Scripture. Not too scholastic, either!

    A collection of writings and sermons from Saint Thomas Aquinas, specifically for meditation during Lent, concerning the nature of Christ's sacrifice at various points throughout His Passion. This is the most poignant, demanding, and applicable group of Lenten reflections that I have read, and better even than the meditations I've read from St John Henry Newman for Advent. This is a book I may re-read every Lent, as the heavenly doctor's wisdom is outstanding.

    This is a wonderful collection of traditional lenten meditations beginning with Septuagesima. The reflections are neither too long nor too short and are rich in spiritual and theological wisdom for each day leading up to the Easter celebration. This is a must-read devotional for any traditional Catholic during lent.

    Os textos de Santo Tomás de Aquino são sempre excelentes, sua lógica e argüição impecáveis. Não obstante, dos textos selecionados para cada dia, alguns me pareceram por demais doutrinais e não me foram muito úteis para meditação.

    Meditations on Lent from a great Saint and doctor of the Church. You have to be acquainted with his style of writing, but he logically and exhaustiively covers every point. Recommended.
