The Way of the Cross Leads Home by Mary McDonald is a powerful affirmation of our faith: that the path to everlasting life is found in Christ's journey to the cross. The music reflects Mary's deep roots in Christian hymnody and her belief that "hymns constitute our Christian heritage and provide a rich reservoir of spiritual guidance. It is through the singing of these great songs that we restate the purpose of our belief and the hope of our existence. The spiritual nourishment of these well-known texts supplies us with the reassurance that the Bible is true and God is real." The inspired combination of traditional hymn tunes and Mary's original melodies creates a seamless flow as the words of the hymns partner with the narrative to tell the story. Along the way, both performer and listener will pause to reflect upon and experience those events of 2,000 years ago--and to be reminded that, throughout this journey of faith, we have a Savior who will lead us to our eternal home.
