Actor Liam Neeson records Way of the Cross for CD project DENVER (CNS)
-- Actor Liam Neeson, whose latest film "Taken" was the top box-office draw in the United States the first weekend of its release Jan. 30-Feb.1, has narrated a version of the Way of the Cross written by St. Alphonsus Liguori.
"Praying the Way of the Cross" was scheduled to be available Ash Wednesday, Feb. 25. The CD, available at, is a project of the Denver province of the Redemptorists, the religious order founded by St. Alphonsus. Proceeds from sales will help the Redemptorists' missions in Brazil and Nigeria.
"I had heard about the Redemptorists and their missionary work in the Amazon rain forest of Brazil and in the slums of Lagos and Ibadan, Nigeria," Neeson said in a statement. "I was moved to help because the Redemptorists are living the Gospel message in some of the poorest parts of the world, offering hope to families who have been forgotten or abandoned."
The CD is available for $16.95 plus shipping and handling. Information on ordering it is available online at:, or by calling (800) 231-1207.

Wow! I'm quite surprised Neeson would be involved in such a project. I knew he was Catholic, but was unaware he was involved with the faith to a significant extent.

I quess not all actors are self centered. We could use more of the rich and famous to develop a social conscience.

I'm not surprised that Mr. Neeson is involved in the production of this "Way of the Cross". It is a great witness to the holy faith.

Father God you are Awesome. You said in your word the when "I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." John 12:32. I thank you that you have drawn Liam Neeson to yourself. Praise you Lord Jesus.Especially during this very difficult time of losing his wife Natasha. I pray that Liam grows even closer to You during this time. Amen.
