A profound collection of meditations and reflections on the cross. They speak of the mystery of suffering and the mystery of God's love shown particularly in the death and resurrection of Christ. Drawing on the liturgy of the Church, especially the Easter liturgy, Cardinal Hume reminds us that Christ shared our pain and that 'our suffering brings us closer to Christ and closer to God.'

Basil Hume OSB was the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster from 1976-99, and a monk, and former Abbot of Ampleforth Abbey. He died on 17 June 1999. One of the best-loved religious figures in the United Kingdom, he wrote several best-selling books, including Basil in Blunderland, Footprints of the Northern Saints, The Mystery of Love and The Mystery of the Incarnation (all DLT).
