Meditations on the Holy Cross
by John Warren Oakes and Dr. Elizabeth Oakes
About the Book
25 reproductions of contemporary paintings of the crucifixion by John Warren Oakes with commentary by Dr. Elizabeth Oakes for spiritual reflection. The series of images move from crucifixion to transcendence to inclusion. The images "show a real mystical level of gazing upon the crucified....they surely could help many people." - Fr. Richard Rohr of the Center for Action and Contemplation.
