The Way of the Cross

The Way of the Cross, published after St. Josemaria's death, contains brief commentaries on the 14 stations, fruit of the founder of Opus Dei's personal prayer life.

"The Way of the Cross is not a sad devotion," Bishop Alvaro del Portillo writes in the foreword. "Msgr. Escriva taught many times that Christian joy has its roots in the shape of a cross. If the Passion of Christ is a path of pain, it is also a path of hope to certain victory."

This new posthumous work of St. Josemaria, like the previous ones, seeks to help people to pray and, with God's grace, to grow in a spirit of reparation-of love-sorrow-and of gratitude to our Lord, who has rescued us at the cost of his Blood.

The first edition of The Way of the Cross appeared in 1981. Over 400,000 copies have been sold, in 19 languages.
