Lent 2017: Stations of the Cross
3 April 2017
Holy Week is a special moment of grace for us all to draw closer to Jesus in prayer.
Pope Francis calls us to “serve Christ present in our brothers and sisters in need”. Please remember to pray for our sisters and brothers living in poverty this week.
Stations of the Cross
Our Stations of the Cross resource is intended to accompany you on your faith journey this Lent, especially during Holy Week.
It includes a PowerPoint reflection to share with your parish or community, and a service sheet to guide you through the fifteen stations. We invite you to listen to stories like Patrick’s from Zambia, to help you reflect in a spirit of compassion.
When Patrick was a child, his father passed away. He struggled to have enough food and was treated by his family as a burden to carry.
Years later, Patrick has turned his life around. He is now working with our partner, the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. He teaches tailoring skills to people living with disabilities in his village.
“People are very important,” he says. “It doesn’t matter if they have disabilities or not. They are people. I want to help others.”
Patrick’s story is one of hope and transformation. Patrick has carried a heavy burden, but he is now living in the fullness of joy. This reminds us of the redeeming hope of Christ's Resurrection at Easter.
Thank you as always for your generosity and prayers. We hope you have a blessed and holy Easter.
