The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ: Mel Gibson has based his movie, "The Passion" on this book! 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.

Last year, we studied the pretzel's meaning during Lent. Being short on time, the girls made them out of Pillsbury bread sticks. Much easier. Love the sign!

The short prayer which Jesus taught St. Faustina for the veneration of His Mercy at the hour of His death: "As often as you hear the clock strike the third hour immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it, invoke it's omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners, for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul" (Diary of St. Faustina, 1572).

Good Friday.
