The Holy Ways of the Cross

A Short Treatise on the Various Trials and Afflictions, Interior and Exterior to Which the Spiritual Life is Subject

by Henri-Marie Boudon
218 pp. paperback

 Amid the present darkness and distress this little book may help to minister consolation and inspire drooping hearts with courage by reminding them that suffering is the Church’s heritage, the very condition of her well-being and truly her highest privilege inasmuch as it renders her most like to her Divine Spouse and is the pledge of her triumphs. As of the Lord Himself (Luke 24:26), so of His Church it may be truly said that she ought to suffer these things and so to enter into her glory. The book especially addresses the sufferings and crosses endured by those who pursue a deep life of prayer, striving for close union with God, and how these crosses lead to happiness, peace and glory.

In the words of the doctors in theology who were commissioned to examine and report upon the contents of this book previous to its publication in the year 1671, “It is a book as full of instruction for souls which desire to rise to perfection as for those whose office it is to direct them on their way. We have found in it a teaching all divine.... This science of the Cross, unhappily, is ignored, neglected, or despised by the greater part of men, comprising even a number of the learned, who, devoting all their life to the study of the speculative sciences, pay no regard to the science and the maxims of Jesus Crucified, ‘in whom’, nevertheless, ‘are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge’ (Col. 2:3). It may be hoped that the reading of this book will inspire those who peruse it with the desire of dying wholly to themselves and following Jesus Christ, seeing that it is replete with the unction of the Spirit of God.”
