This personal Way of the Cross from the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network beautifully expresses the deep connection between the Eucharist and the Cross. At each of the fourteen stations, readers are encouraged to offer themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus by uniting their sufferings with his in the Eucharist.
The spirituality of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network comes to life in meditations on the classic Catholic Lenten devotion, the Stations of the Cross. Recalling the dramatic events of Jesus’ passion and death helps readers enter more fully into the celebration of the Mass that makes these events present in a real way. Focusing on the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the stations affirm how he gave up his body—his very heart—out of love for all.
Originally written by Rev. Will Prospero, S.J. (1965-2014), and edited by Rev. James Kubicki, S.J., former national director of the Apostleship of Prayer (now the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network), these stations are already beloved by followers of the ministry. Stations of the Cross with the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus is beautifully illustrated with artwork of the Stations of the Cross located in the School Sisters of St. Francis’s St. Joseph Chapel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
