Experience for yourself the Way of the Cross that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger — now Pope Benedict XVI — wrote for this time-honored devotion held on Good Friday at Rome’s Colosseum. Each station begins with a verse from Scripture about Christ's Passion. Next, Pope Benedict gives a short meditation on the Station, followed by a short prayer. The Our Father is prayed and then the verses of the Stabat Mater can be recited or sung. Perfect for individual or group prayer. The book is filled with beautiful full color illustrations to aid your reflection.
Pray through the mystery of salvation with Pope Benedict XVI. This beautifully illustrated book has 14 full-color art pieces by Dutch Symbolist painter Jan Toorop from the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, Netherlands.
Designed to be a companion to best-selling John Paul II - A Marian Treasury.
