Product Description

O Cross of Christ is an original, new prayer composed by Pope Francis himself and recited by him on the occasion of Good Friday 2016. It guides all who pray it to recognize Jesus’ cross in some of the most distressing circumstances of today’s world - modern-day martyrs, victims of war, unfaithful ministers, and more - as well as in the lives of people who do great good - consecrated men and women, families, volunteers, and others.

Presented as a litany, with responses that make it ideal for group use, this little booklet is beautifully illustrated with original art by the American artist Deborah Luke. The result is a prayer resource that promises to serve as a profound source of spiritual nourishment for Christians for years to come. Recommended for personal, family, group, or parish-wide prayer.

Editorial Reviews

The Liturgical Press has published this meaningful prayer and, with permission from the Vatican, added short responses after each section, which allows the prayer to be used as a litany if desired. Each page features interesting black-and-white artwork by Deborah Luke. This nice little book can be used by individuals, families, small groups and large gatherings.
The Visitor

"Pope Francis has a wonderful ability to pray in words deeply embedded in the theology and imagery of Scripture and at the same time reflective of genuine human experience. That is the case with this booklet, which draws on an extended reflection on the cross the Pope recited at the conclusion of the annual Stations of the Cross celebrated at the Coliseum on Good Friday, March 25, 2016. Beautifully presented with the accompanying sketches of artist Deborah Like, this would be ideal for personal meditation or for use in a parish Lenten service.
