For the last few years, my parish has offered a unique interpretation of the Stations of the Cross during Lent: “Mary’s Way of the Cross,” by Fr. Richard Furey, CSsR. It’s a dramatic, poignant, heart-wrenching retelling of the Passion, through the eyes of Christ’s mother. We do it with up to 20 altar servers, music and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. I never cease to be amazed at the turnout for this devotion — hundreds show up week after week.
It’s also a ministry that my wife and I are able to do together; I lead the stations, and she narrates Mary’s meditations.
Curious? “Currents” did a short piece on this last week. Take a look below.
