Overview
-

In The Cross of Addiction we walk the Way of the Cross with those who are among the most vulnerable in our society, those battling addiction and their loved ones. Through compassionate and thought-provoking meditations on each of the Stations of the Cross, we are given insight into the struggle of addiction. Personal meditations from those carrying the cross of addiction and those closest to them provide intimate portrayals of this struggle, while reflections from those who work in the area highlight the importance of compassion for those carrying this cross and provide a deep sense of hope. Reflections are included from some of the leading advocates of social justice in Ireland, including Sr Consilio, Archbishop Eamon Martin, Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Charles Brown, Fr Peter McVerry, Sr Stan Kennedy and many more.
