This book is a compilation of 13 different stations of the cross methods ( I wish a 14th had been added to mirror the 14 Stations), beginning with the two most popular- St. Alphonsus Liguori and St. Francis of Assisi. The first five methods include art work of each station while the last eight have no visuals.
The layout is very pretty, with the repeating opening in both Latin and English, placed in a yellow box at the top and the prompt for the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be in a yellow box at the bottom. The methods with artwork contain the traveling verse of the Stabat Mater under the visual on the left page, with the text of the station on the right page. The end of the book contains prayers, litanies, hymns (some written as for chant), and the normal conditions for obtaining the plenary indulgence.
I love the Stations and do them most days, making a point to physically travel them every Wednesday and Friday, but often traveling them on the other days as well. It is so nice to have so many options in one book. I would have liked Fulton Sheen's included or the version of Fatima Stations of the Cross by Rev. Fr. Louis M. Solcia C.R.S.P.
Beautiful, sturdy hardcover with a plain front and back and simple gold lettering. A ribbon would have been a nice addition, but prayer cards are always good. Love this book.
