By Henri-Marie Boudon

Edited by Rev. Hugh Gillespie, S.M.M., and Andrew L. Ouellette

The Cross of Christ, writes Henri-Marie Boudon, is “the great masterpiece of the wisdom of a God.” Far exceeding the reaches of human reasoning, this masterpiece is intelligible only in the light of faith. In this light, Christians can approach the Cross, despise not the weight of their own crosses, and joyfully follow the way of the Lord.

Let us consider with attention all that has passed under the law of nature, the written law, and the law of grace; and we shall most clearly see that the way of the Cross has ever been the royal highroad of the elect. (Henri-Marie Boudon)

An ideal representation of the French School of spirituality, The Holy Ways of the Cross combines the manifold fruits of theology, mysticism, and pastoral care in guiding its readers along “the Royal Highway of the Cross,” through trials both exterior and interior, toward unity with God. Complimented by new, illuminating Introductions from Andrew L. Ouellette and Rev. Hugh Gillespie, S.M.M., The Holy Ways of the Cross proffers spiritual food and drink for souls following in the footsteps of their crucified Lord.
