Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692389253, Paperback)

This meditational prayer booklet is based upon the inspirations of a cancer survivor from Shreveport, Louisiana, who wishes to be known only as "Bettye." The book correlates the journey of a cancer patient to the steps of Jesus as he traveled to Calvary. Each station is accompanied by a beautiful photographic image, donated by Harrington House Studio and Gallery of Shreveport, Louisiana. The photographs are symbolic in nature and provide the basis for the meditations. For example, the First Station, Jesus is Condemned, is pictured with the image of a sunset, with the sun shining through the clouds to inspire hope. The Second Station, Jesus Accepts His Cross, is pictured with a set of stairs climbing upward. The photographs in the book vary from nature scenes in Shreveport to images from geographic locations such as Pompeii, Italy, General Cepeda, Mexico, and Barcelona, Spain. The tone of the book is one of hope and inspiration for any individual who is facing a trial or for any individual who simply wishes to experience the devotion of the way of the cross from a modern day perspective. In addition to the exquisite photograph, each station is accompanied by a brief meditation, a scripture verse, and an inspirational message coined by Bettye and affectionately called a Bettyism. These Bettyisms include messages such as "Worry about nothing, pray about everything, and you can overcome anything." And to quote another example, "Lord, place your Super on my natural, so I will have SUPERNATURAL strength to carry me through." The book carries the Ecclesiastical Approbation of Bishop Michael G. Duca, Bishop of Shreveport. The Loyola College Prep Rosary Group published the book as a fundraiser to assist cancer patients in the Shreveport area.
