Stand together and walk for the Way of the Cross

There’s never been a better time to stand together as Catholics and Christians.

As we go through the Lenten season and approach Holy Week, many may be wondering how they can make a true difference in the life of the Church and help others come to see that it is truly more than they realize.

Each year on Good Friday, parishes, apostolates and lay movements around the world hold Way of the Cross processions to commemorate the sacrifice of our Lord and to humbly remind us of his suffering for our sake.

This year, why not make the turnouts for these processions greater than ever and in turn, provide a powerful witness for Christ in the public square?

The Way of the Cross procession, or the Via Dolorosa, is a great opportunity to reflect and meditate on the passion of our Lord. It is a visual sign to remind all participants and bystanders of Christ’s suffering, that he gave his life for our sins. Imagine if we gathered in cities across the country for this prayer, all on the same day? Let us humble ourselves and walk in the steps of our Lord together, so that all may see that he is with us.
