A copy of The Way for the miners trapped in Chile

The 33 miners who were trapped in Chile at a depth of some 2,200 feet received 33 prayer cards of our Lady and of St. Josemaría and scapular medals of our Lady of Mt. Carmel, together with a small copy of Camino (The Way). Several people with devotion to St. Josemaría came up with this idea. The big problem was the size of the book, since normal sized copies did not fit into the metal cylinders that brought food and medicine down to the miners. Finally someone donated an especially small edition, published many years earlier in Argentina, which met the size and weight requirements.
