Elizabeth Ryans sculptures are beautiful evocations of scriptural themes and stories. In The Road to Calvary Elizabeths works on the Passion of Christ are accompanied by a series of verses which encourage us to reflect on the great sacrifice Our Lord made for his people through his Crucifixion and Ressurection.
The book, with its rich imagery and thoughtful commentary, provides a much needed resource for anyone wishing to reflect on this most important even in the Christian tradition.
A very simple book, reflecting on the last journey of Our Lord as represented by the fourteen stations on the Road to Calvary . Elizabeth Ryan is a sculptor and there are fourteen photographs of her own sculptures of the Stations of the Cross, which currently hang in St Anne s Church, Ardclough, Kill Co. Kildare. Although each piece really speaks for itself, she has also written a short verse to accompany each photograph. The book is intended to be a prayer which might be used at any time of the year, but would perhaps be the most suitable during the Lenten season. Diocesan Magazine June 2006

There the iconic images of her own treatment of the Passion story are accompanied by a simple prayerful commentary. The combinations of words and art dealing with the key event in salvation history are a rich source of meditation. The Irish Catholic
