The Way of the Cross Booklet - Saint Josemaría Escrivá and Michael O'Brien

The Way of the Cross
Saint Josemaría Escrivá
Michael O'Brien (Illustrator)
ISBN 9781594173790

This is a new booklet from Scepter it contains part of the text in the book version, The Way of the Cross. It contains the same meditations but with out as much before the stations begin or after they end. At also does not contain the extra points for reflection after each station. 

There are, however, a few things that make this version exception. First the price point and being able to buy in bulk. Second the illustrations or paintings from Michael O'Brien. It contains 14 original full color paintings for the stations. The paintings are beautiful, with rich colors and they evoke deep emotions and feelings. 

Some sample pages are:

I love this smaller booklet format. It is excellent for personal, family or group use. But also enjoy the other edition. I do wish an eBook of this version was available. 

A great book. I picked up 5 and have already given the other 4 away. If you order spend the extra and order in bulk. They make great gifts through Lent, Easter Week, or all year round. 

An excellent resource from Scepter Publishers.

Note: This book is part of a series of reviews: 2021 Catholic Reading Plan!
