A stunning and moving photographic and textual reflection expressing the mystery of the Cross in the life of Pope John Paul II. The text is written by Pope John Paul II for the Via Crucis (The Way of the Cross) journey which he made to the Colosseum in Rome, Italy, on Good Friday, April 2000, expressing the richness of his own spirituality, as it is related to the Cross, to Faith, to Life, and to Love.
Testimony of the Cross includes illustrations for each station of the Cross, and prayers and mediations written by the Holy Father. In addition, the beautiful 40 color photographs provide an exquisite retrospective of the Holy Father's pontificate (spanning 1986-2001).
This book is for both personal use and is an excellent gift-giving idea.
