Loyola Rosary Group Sponsors Book Publication

The Loyola Rosary Group is sponsoring the publication and distribution of a book entitled The Way of the Cross – Meditations of a Cancer Survivor.  The text of the book is based upon the inspirations of a cancer survivor from the Diocese of Shreveport.  The book presents the devotion of The Way of the Cross from the perspective of an individual undergoing treatment for cancer; however, the meditations are suitable for anyone to read as the reflections provide messages of hope and inspiration for all. Each station is accompanied by a photograph, provided by Pat Harrington of Harrington House Photographic Studio and Gallery. These photos are different than those typically associated with the Stations.  The images are symbolic in nature and provide the basis for the meditation.

Proceeds will be donated to The Shreveport-Bossier Cancer League Foundation, a charitable organization that assists with transportation and lodging needs for cancer patients. A portion of the proceeds will also be directed to the Loyola General Scholarship Fund. The books provide an excellent meditational resource for the Lenten Season and are available in Shreveport at Jacob’s Well Catholic Book Store, St. Paul’s Gift Shop, Harrington House Studio and Gallery, St. Joseph Church Office and at the Anderson Building on the Loyola Campus. Books are $20. If you would like to make a donation to provide books to local cancer patients, please contact chairpersons Julia Pettiette Doolin or Carroll Watts Neal at lcprosary@loyolaprep.org.
