Today, on this Third Friday in Lent, we remember the ancient tradition of the Way of the Cross or Via Crucis – also known as Stations of the Cross. “The devotion known as the Way of the Cross is an adaptation to local usage of a custom widely observed by pilgrims to Jerusalem: the offering of prayer at a series of places in that city traditionally associated with our Lord’s passion and death.” (Book of Occasional Services)
This week, I asked Fr. Michael and Dr. Newman to help me record an online version of the Stations of the Cross using the beautiful wood carvings that line the walls of the nave at Grace. The video can be accessed here or viewed below.
Even though we cannot physically gather in the church during this time, we hope this is a healing and peaceful way for us to remain connected through our common prayer as we continue in this season of Lent.
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you;
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
