Want to go deeper with Jesus? Follow the Way of the Cross.
We know that the passion, death and resurrection of Christ is the climax of the Gospels and the very foundation of Christianity. But what does it mean for us? What does it mean for you and me, living our day-to-day lives in the twenty-first century? People tend to look at the Way of the Cross as a quaint devotion designed to make them feel guilty, rather than a living meditation which makes them feel closer to a loving God.
Mary Pezzulo’s Meditations on the Way of the Cross is a different sort of Way of the Cross devotion. This is a book of meditations on how Christ in His passion came to embrace in our own lives, with all of our struggles and sufferings– in our relationships with our family, in being the victim of discrimination in mental or physical illness, in disability, in loneliness. Christ is immanent, in His passion and death, in our own lives as human beings.
Meditations on the Way of the Cross began as a series of popular posts for the season of Lent on Mary Pezzulo’s blog, Steel Magnificat. The individual meditations were shared by churches of different denominations to wide acclaim. Now they have been revised and compiled into a book you can bring with you to church, to the hospital or wherever you find yourself; to use for meditation prompts in a Bible study, a small group or by yourself, to help you in your own spiritual journey in Lent and throughout the year.
If you are looking for a way to call to mind the love of Christ in your everyday life this Lent, this book is for you.
