MY WAY OF THE CROSS JOURNAL
William F. Maestri
“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow in my footsteps” (Mk 8:34). The Way of the Cross is anything but romantic or sentimental. If anything, it is a demanding invitation to die to self in order to enter into the fullness of life. “Anyone who wants to save his life will lose it, whereas anyone who loses his life for my sake and for the sake of the gospel will save it” (Mk 8:35). There is no cheap grace to be had. Jesus’ victory — and ours — over sin and death comes at a great price. The forty days of Lent offer us an unparalleled opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Lord as he proves, in ways both great and small, the depth of his divine love for us. The journal format of this book imposes upon us the discipline we need to examine our progress along the way so that, on Easter Monday, when we have completed our journey with Jesus we will have more than a book of reflections. We will have a guide for the journey which still lies ahead.
