The Franciscan Way of the Cross is a shorter meditation on the Way of Christ to Calvary. The devotion itself largely goes back to St. Francis, while the prayers and meditations contained here were written in the 16th century and have been used by Franciscans when preaching missions. Newly translated to be as close to the Latin as possible, this way of the Cross will help draw you in to the mystery of Christ’s passion. Being in Latin and English, it gives the devotee options as to how he will pray it. In addition, the Seven Joys of Mary, which make up the Franciscan Crown or Seraphic Rosary have also been added, with the mysteries and prayers likewise in both Latin and English. Since the devotion of the Way of the Cross originated with the Franciscans, it is fitting to offer this work to draw the devotee back to the source of this devotion.

Unlike any other Way of the Cross, the "Franciscan Way of the Cross: The Peace Prayer" is framed not only by the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, but by the Franciscan Peace Prayer. Each Station of the Cross is accompanied by a brief reflection of Christ's journey to Calvary as well as a line of the Peace Prayer that directly correlates to that particular station. Each reflection brings together Jesus' ultimate sacrifice with the Franciscan reminder for peace and harmony in our daily lives, and especially during the Lenten Season.
