Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This timely book of meditations intends to guide us to an encounter with Christ as homeless person, and Parker's terra-cotta renderings of the stations of the cross are powerful. Unfortunately, the poetry--a choppy prose--is full of abstract declarations and adjectives that serve to distance the reader. Lines like "this sad/ recumbent motionless phalanx/ the dispossessed" or "The terror of Gate 12/ Station 12/ Feat trembling/ overmastering" describe rather than present emotion and experience; they neatly identify what the reader is to feel rather than evoking a response. The engaging language of the many Bible verses included contrasts sharply with the flat modern text. Obviously well intentioned, this book will appeal to some.

By Love Thy.Enemy VINE VOICE on October 13, 2008
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Several very moving and effective, awakening and profoundly spiritual Ways of the Cross (VIA CRUCIS) have been prepared for our meditation and solace, for our every-Friday reading as lectio divina, for our Peace in Jesus Christ. In particular and for many decades now it seems I have found especially edifying Friar Boff's Way of the Cross--Way of Justice.

Nevertheless as a hermeneutic for our own time and place, this present STATIONS written by the Reverend Father Daniel Berrigan SJ with terracotta STATIONS by Margaret Parker may do most to enliven our stoney hearts into human flesh, and our dry ritual into the prayer of tears, may best carry us along like Simon of Cyrene along this way, may best show us how and where we flow in picking up our own cross and walking each day.

Margaret Parker creates here images reminiscent of Mother Placid Dempsey's Stations in the Little Chapel at regina Laudis Abbey in their stark closely cropped bas-relief yet unlike those carved wood plagues, we here distinguish details which place these STATIONS along the subway stations of Manhattan, the Bowery, Harlem, where Father Daniel Berrigan has served for years in all sorts of ministry to the poor, including in an AIDS hospice. Here we see one image of rows upon rows of hospital beds which could actually be receiving the wasted bodies of AIDS victims.

You will want to find a way to enlarge these images to life size, to wall size, in order to enter fully the mystery of each one, the healing through each one's contemplation.
