Marie Rouanet offers a dramatic Way of the Cross that is a powerful yet personal meditation on today. This Way of the Cross is one of participation and emotional involvement in which Christ's Passion is brought to life by the sensitive and questioning tone of the stories of the women who followed Jesus. It includes gripping black-and-white photographs of modern people that bring each Station of the Cross to life.

The purpose of this work is to renew a time-honored devotion. It makes the journey come alive through its personal and dramatic style. Its easy-to-follow format leads the individual through each station: a Scripture passage is read; a retelling of the event from the perspective of the women on the Way of the Cross follows; a short prayer is recited by the congregation that responds to what was revealed in the retelling and applies it to modern, everyday life. Images of people from around the world conclude each station.

Intended for individual or group use, The Way of the Cross: The Women of Jerusalem Follow Jesus provides a new perspective of Christ's Passion. Although it differs from the traditional stations, this Way of the Cross provides a compelling alternative to the traditional Way of the Cross that can easily be imagined by the assembly. Whether it is done in congregation or alone, it revives anew interest in this important devotion of the Church.
