The way to Eternal Life is through the Cross, and to be effective, it requires our cooperation—the loving gift of self in response to God's love for us. God's desire to involve us in his merciful act of redemption. This book is intended to be an extended meditation on that mystery. It is not a devotional guide on the Stations of the Cross in the traditional sense—though it can certainly be used as such. Rather, each Station offers avenues of reflection connecting the Cross of Christ with our own.
