school1837xEditor’s Note:  In his book, The School of Jesus Crucified, Father Ignatius of the Side of Jesus, Passionist, outlines 25 points as a “Practical Rule of Christian Life for Daily Observance”. We will publish one a day:  “Your meditation being finished, you should then resolve that in all your actions you will seek to imitate Jesus suffering and dying for your sake.  Resolve that during the whole course of the day, you will most lovingly remain in spirit by the side of your Divine suffering Redeemer, calling to mind as often as possible that portion of His Passion on which you have been meditating in the morning.  Nothing can be more efficacious in affording us consolation under the trials of this life than the remembrance of the sufferings of Jesus.”
