STATIONS OF THE CROSS
JOIN US ANY/EVERY LENTEN
Stations of the Cross, 7PM, Fridays, in the Chapel.
Stations of the Cross are a simple yet powerful and devotional way to mark Jesus’ pilgrimage to Calvary as seen through the lens of our personal life experience. Stations are prayed 7PM, Fridays during Lent, in the Chapel.
DID YOU KNOW THAT…The Way of the Cross as a devotion came late in our Church tradition and it is only at the end of the 17th century, under the influence and spiritual guidance of the Franciscans, that the creation of the fourteen stations became a common practice in churches and chapels.
In the wake of the biblical renewal initiated in the 1950s and of the Vatican II, many churches have aptly added a fifteenth station—the Resurrection—to give the devotion its proper complement and conclusion. Passion plays became very popular in the Middle Ages; they had been preceded by Easter plays in the late 10th century. (God’s Word Today, March 2010)
We are teaming up with Our Lady of the Assumption Parish here in Fairfield to bring the Little Sisters of the Lamb (http://bit.ly/2GP3TTa) who will lead us in prayer and reflection throughout the week. The Little Sisters will be with us for the first part of the week, and at Assumption for the final part of the week. Details will follow soon!

We begin Lent with stark contrasts between life and death, good and evil, water and desert. God’s response is equally strong. God’s covenant is with everyone and everything. Nothing is outside the reach of God’s love. God’s covenant is limitless. We set out on our own journey of preparation today but we are not alone. However we choose to use this time to prepare ourselves for the death and resurrection that is to come, we are accompanied by the same Spirit that compelled Noah to build the Ark to preserve life on earth. We are accompanied by the same Spirit that drove Jesus into the desert to face temptation. It is that Spirit that makes our journey through Lent possible. Who could face such floods of temptation alone? No one, not even Jesus, as we will hear during Holy Week, faces death alone.
