Every Lent, Catholics the world over celebrate the Way of the Cross. A beautiful, important devotion, it has provided strength and courage to millions of people. But some Catholics wonder what relevance it has to contemporary faith. When Silence Falls is designed for those questioning why they need to spend Lent meditating on Jesus' suffering and crucifixion. This booklet masterfully combines Scripture with examples from modern life to show how the course of each life follows its own Way of the Cross.
This is also a booklet for those who love the Stations of the Cross. Sometimes when a prayer becomes too familiar, we fail to truly appreciate its meaning and apply its lessons to our lives. When Silence Falls will reverently guide readers through the Stations of the Cross they've grown to love while allowing them to consider the Stations in an entirely new way—and in the process deepen their understanding of Christ's journey to Calvary.
Perfect for parish or group use, When Silence Falls can also be used by individuals looking to deepen their faith.
