"The Way of the Cross is not a sad devotion. Msgr. Escriva taught many times that Christian joy has its roots in the shape of a cross. If the Passion of Christ is a way of pain, it is also a path of hope leading to certain victory. As he explained in one of his homilies: You should realize that God wants you to be glad and that, if you do all you can, you will never for a moment be without the Cross. But that Cross is no longer a gallows. It is the throne from which Christ reigns. And at his side, his Mother, our Mother too. The Blessed Virgin will obtain for you the strength that you need to walk decisively in the footsteps of her Son" (Friends of God).
-Bishop Alvaro del Portillo

About the Author

St. Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer (9 January 1902 – 26 June 1975) was a Roman Catholic priest from Spain who founded Opus Dei, an organization of laypeople and priests dedicated to teaching people how to respond to God's universal call to holiness, and how ordinary life can be the path to sanctity.

St. Josemaria was canonized during 2002 by St. John Paul II, who declared that he should be counted among the great witnesses of Christianity. St. Josemaría's writings assist every baptized person in their discipleship to Jesus Christ through by imbuing ordinary life with sanctifying grace.
