PODCAST | The Way of the Cross: A Way Loved by the Church

[ Podcast Transcript ]

Published in 1981, The Way of the Cross – a posthumous work of St. Josemaria Escriva – has become a beloved devotion for Catholics worldwide. This season of Lent, we will be sharing a new five-part podcast series from Fr. Donncha Ó hAodha on the prominent themes found in The Way of the Cross that can help us to be renewed and strengthened in Christ’s love through the contemplation of his Passion and death on the Cross.

In this first podcast of the series, Fr. Donncha shares a brief history of The Way of the Cross as he introduces listeners to this beloved devotion in the Church. Fr. Donncha challenges us to spend time this Lent to discover how Our Lord loves us and gives himself up for us through his Passion and death on the Cross. Through our meditation on Christ’s pain and suffering we can come to a deeper understanding and appreciation for the depth of God’s love and can seek to remain close to him in our most difficult moments.
