Pious Reflections

on Different Points of Spirituality,
to Guide Souls that Desire
to Advance in the Love of God.

This little work was published in 1773, with the "Considerations on the Passion." The saintly author wrote on the 8th of September, 1773, in one of his spiritual letters: "Here are two little works, one of which may aid you to meditate on the Passion; I use it myself every day. . . . I also read every day something of the other little work, entitled 'Pious Reflections, etc.' I wish you to do the same; for I wrote it especially for those souls that desire to give themselves entirely to God."
— Rev. Eugene Grimm.
