A discussion on the meditations on the passion and death of Jesus Christ is reported. It is hoped that the devout and generous reader will take up this humble little book in the spirit in which it was written, namely, to increase the glory of God and the love of Jesus as well as to awaken true devotion. Catharina Regina von Greiffenberg quotes Jn 19: 17, and thereafter switches to Lk 23: 26, which describes how Simon of Cyrene is then compelled to carry the cross for Jesus. Furthermore, it contemplates the excruciating agony that Jesus suffered on the cross to appease God's wrath and gain redemption for sinful humanity. She commences the tenth meditation with Lk 23: 34. The twelfth meditation opens with the arrival of Joseph of Arimathea, who asks Pontius Pilate for the body of Jesus.
