Stations of the Cross

Join us tomorrow night at 7:00p.m. in the Pauline Center for the Way of the Cross. We will pray the Stations using clips from movies like Jesus of Nazareth and The Passion.

By the way, if you are looking for a different way to approach this beautiful lenten prayer, you may want to consider Mary's Way of the Cross--Walking with the Mother of Jesus. Published by Pauline Books & Media, this unique presentation allows us to view the mysteries of our redemption through Mary's eyes. With her we contemplate her Son's tremendous love, which led him to pour out his life for us.
This pamphlet was written by a mother, and it conveys a particular sense of warmth and intimacy. Here's just a sample:

"[Mary,] did your silent, compassionate love give [Jesus] strength to go on? You gaze at one another. These seconds speak more than many words. This is how it ought to be for us. Every day there are such encounters. With your divine Son will you, too, walk beside me, look at me deep down, return my why with your gentle presence? When we look at one another, let it be as valuable as a long conversation. When others look at me and I at them, how beautiful it would be if we saw the face of Christ reflected there, just as you reflected it!" (Mary's Way of the Cross, p. 13).
