This new edition of the Spiritual Calendar provides a welcome opportunity to make contact with the vibrant spirituality of Blessed Antonio Rosmini, the “householder” of the Gospel “who brings from his storeroom things both new and old”. Each daily reflection is a pearl of wisdom which reaches out to the concrete situations of life shedding light and encouraging a response based on truth and charity.
This is undoubtedly the most famous of Rosmini’s books, in which he notes defects and abuses in the Church, but in a twofold spirit of suffering and hope. Saddened by the inevitable shortcomings of churchmen, he believed and trusted with complete certainty in the infinite power of the Holy Spirit at work in the Church. It caused him immense personal damage, but he felt that the renewal of the Church was of such great urgency that he had to be prepared to suffer for it. Rosmini borrowed the image of the “crucified Church” from Pope Innocent IV (1243-1254).
