With more than three million copies sold of the English edition of Everyone’s Way of the Cross, the Spanish edition of this perennial bestseller, El Vía Crucis Para Todos, will find a welcome home with the twenty-six million Latino Catholics now in the United States. For more than forty years, the simple, intimate, and powerful words of Clarence Enzler’s Everyone’s Way of the Cross have invited readers to grow closer to Christ by embracing the mystery of suffering in the world. By joining Christ on this transformative journey, we learn to become his disciples—his other self—to a hurting world. Enzler’s classic is given new vibrancy with beautiful, meditative, commissioned woodcuts by Annika Nelson and her mother Gertrud Mueller Nelson. The artists express how these meditations show Christ among us—often in unexpected places. In their words, “We find him in the subway, yearning at the border, standing in the soup line—the bewildered soldier, the single mother, the abused child, the lonely senior, the bullied teen.”
