For many of us around the world this time of year revolves around the frenzied rush around the shops. 5 trips, 50 different retailers, 25 presents, only to get home and realize you forgot about your wife's cousin's daughter.

Each journal includes a set of bespoke calendars, glossaries, listings, and a core part of alphabetically organized and tabbed pages to fill in. Outside, a beautifully debossed cover rich with typography and imagery related to the Passion. Inside, 3 ribbon place markers and a double expandable inner pocket.
