In the Footsteps of Christ Devotional


Free Download


As we accompany Jesus along his path of sorrow and prepare to rejoice with him in the glory of the resurrection on Easter Sunday, we are provided the opportunity to look inward and assess what needs to change so that we can more closely align our heart with the heart of Christ. St. Josemaria reminds us:

“We have to learn from him, from Jesus who is our only model. If you want to go forward without stumbling or wandering off the path, then all you have to do is walk the road he walked, placing your feet in his footprints and entering into his humble and patient Heart” (Friends of God, no. 128).

Available as a free digital download, the St. Josemaria Institute’s In the Footsteps of Christ Devotional is a reflection guide and companion to making a weekly holy hour in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and praying the Stations of the Cross. For each week of Lent, you will find:

    • An excerpt from In the Footsteps of Christ, a homily given by St. Josemaria Escriva.
    • A quote and reflection questions inspired by six prominent figures who Jesus encountered along the path to Calvary.
    • A new podcast reflecting on The Way of the Cross by St. Josemaria Escriva.
