A Little Book For Holy Week
Many Catholics seek a little something “extra” to do for Holy Week that will help them admire and learn from Our’s Passion. This section is an online recreation of Fr. Richard Clarke, SJ’s A little book for Holy Week : meditations and readings from Palm Sunday to Easter; with two visits to the Blessed Sacrament on the altar of repose, published in 1915 by the Catholic Truth Society of London.
All good Catholics are desirous to spend Holy Week well, and many have leisure during it to undertake some special devotion in honor of our Lord’s Sacred Passion.
The following pages are intended to promote their pious endeavors, by suggesting suitable thoughts for their consideration. The Meditations and Readings are intended either for use at home or during the various services in the Church. The Meditations, for instance, may be made during Mass, and the Readings during Tenebras. Two Visits to the Blessed Sacrament by St. Alphonsus are inserted on Holy Thursday, to be made before the Altar of Repose.
