The Crucifixion of our Savior
(Peter's art, 2010)
Today, in a very special way, we recall and reflect upon the suffering and death of
our Lord Jesus Christ on the Cross.
In a special service at the hour of Christ's mercy, (no Mass is celebrated on this day) we will venerate the cross and hear scripture proclaimed. We will receive Holy Communion, consecrated at last night's Mass.
We will return to Church for the Stations of the Cross tonight.
Below are the 14 Stations of the Cross.
I pray that all Christians will make some time today to reflect on Christ's great sacrifice for us.
Christ is condemned to death
The cross is laid upon Jesus
Jesus falls the first time
Jesus meets His Blessed Mother
Simon of Cyrene is made to bear the cross
Christ's face is wiped by Veronica
Jesus falls the second time
Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem
Jesus falls the third time
Jesus is stripped of His garments
Jesus is crucified
Jesus dies on the cross
Jesus' body is taken down from the cross
Jesus' body is laid in the tomb
