Summary

Summary

When we dig down into the soul we discover the plan of salvation: God chose to walk with us in the person of Jesus. The way of the cross is a sojourn of the soul that makes us faith walkers, not sightseers: we walk by faith, not by sight. We embark on this journey because we believe that when the Word was made flesh, God became incarnate in all the experiences of our lives. It is the presence - the real presence - of compassionate companions we meet along the way whose sharing of self and stories gives us insight into our souls. The roadsign that guides us on this way of faith is a sign found on the bulletin board of a college campus ministry office: "Religion is for those people who are afraid of going to hell; Spirituality is for those who have been there". When we dare to embark on this soulful journey, we will have the ashes and scars to show where we have been: to hell and back again. That is why the way of the cross is not a stroll through pious fields but a dangerous dance through a spiritual valley of tears and fears. In Faith Walkers, Father Nassal tells the stories of those who have suffered and yet live with hope. If you have ever been hurt in life, this book will give you new strength.
