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.
