Faith-Lilac Way invites you to the Stations of the Cross – Friday, April 15th
On Good Friday you will have the opportunity to join Christians around the world in making a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ through the Stations of the Cross.
The Stations of the Cross is a series of fourteen images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and the stations grew out of imitations of the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is a traditional processional route which symbolizes the actual path that Jesus walked to the Cross on Calvary. The images that we will be using were created by artist Mary Button and were inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic and each picture is accompanied by a prayer.
There are different ways to do this devotion as one may choose to move from image to image or one may choose to remain in one location meditating on the stations or one could alternate between moving and stationary contemplation. Also, the Stations of the Cross is self-paced so you can spend as much or as little time as you would like with each station. Not all of the traditional stations are scripturally based, so on Good Friday there will also be devotional materials available for those wanting to walk the Scriptural Way of the Cross, which is an update on the traditional stations which features fourteen events from the last day of Jesus life according to the Gospels.
Everyone is invited to participate in the Stations of the Cross devotion on Good Friday any time between noon and 2:00pm and also from 4:00 to 6:00pm at Faith-Lilac Way Lutheran Church, 5530 42nd Avenue North, Robbinsdale.
