Following Mary to Calvary

Following Mary to Calvary February 24, 2012

Every year, my wife and I have the privilege of leading our parish’s Stations of the Cross during Lent, using a version that drives home the humanity of the experience in a profoundly moving way.

It’s called “Mary’s Way of the Cross,” by Richard Furey (you can read it all here) and it’s become an enduring tradition at our church.  Tonight, we begin Mary’s journey again.  More than a meditation, it’s a complete event, with a dozen or so altar servers, torchbearers, music and Benediction.   Two years ago, the Diocese of Brooklyn’s cable station NET did a short piece on this devotion, which gives you a small taste of what we do.  Check it out below.  And if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by. We do this every Friday night at 7:30.
