From the Cross to the Empty Tomb
By Most Rev. Arthur J. Serratelli
Publisher: Catholic Book Publishing
This book is a series of meditations on 13 individuals or groups who were with Jesus during His last hours on earth, everyone from St. Peter to Mary to Mary Magdalene to the Centurion to Pontius Pilate.
Along with these profiles, the author includes the Stations of the Cross. He concludes the book with a meditation on the fact that the empty tomb shows that God has the final word, which, he says, is life.
Each meditation is easy to follow and the title of each chapter is followed by a trait or characteristic for the reader to exemplify or reflect on. This book is recommended for Catholics who are looking for an easy to read, yet in-depth devotional.
