20th February 2009

On Friday 20th February 2009 Passionists celebrate the Titular Feast of the Congregation – the Solemn Commemoration of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

It is celebrated each year on the Friday before Ash Wednesday.

This feast, which was instituted by St. Paul of the Cross, is a joyful celebration of the mystery of Good Friday focussing on the Passion as “the most overwhelming sign of God’s love” (St. Paul of the Cross).

Passionist Bishop Vincent Strambi writes, “Happy is the person who reflects on the life giving passion of our Lord. He will be humble, trustful, thankful and loving towards Jesus who is our justice, our sanctification and our redemption” . (From the book ‘The Treasures Which We Have in Jesus Christ,’ Volume III, p. 14)

May the Passion of Jesus be always in our hearts!

    I have recently been inspired by many signs to look deeper into the Passionists. Your site has been most helpful in my research of the congregation. Thanks for all that you do here and may God bless you abundantly.
