  • A profound collection of meditations and reflections on the cross. They speak of the mystery of suffering and the mystery of God's love shown particularly in the death and resurrection of Christ. Drawing on the liturgy of the Church, especially the Easter liturgy, Cardinal Hume reminds us that Christ shared our pain and that 'our suffering brings us closer to Christ and closer to God.'
