Stations of the Cross - In Atonement for Abuse and for the Healing of All
Compiled by Paul Turner. Illustrated by Ronald Patrick Raab CSC.
The Stations of the Cross in Atonement for Abuse and for the Healing of All invites a wounded church to contemplate the passion and death of Jesus through the experience of clerical abuse survivors. This one-of-a-kind resource is written and illustrated by priests to foster healing amidst the destruction committed by their brothers. Award winning author and acclaimed liturgist Paul Turner pairs each of the fourteen scripture based stations with powerful quotes from survivors of clerical abuse and responds to each with a profound confessional prayer. Thought provoking paintings by author and liturgist Ronald Patrick Raab, CSC, accompany each station.
This resource will be cherished by parishes, faith-based organisations, retreat centres, prayer groups, youth groups, school and campus ministry programs, families and individuals who yearn to honour survivors suffering with Christ and who yearn to bring this too often ignored reality to lived prayer experiences.
