We Walk with the Lord
on the Way of the Cross

In this Way of the Cross we accompany Jesus on his sorrowful journey to Calvary. We walk with him through the streets of Jerusalem, following the traditional pilgrim route, along the Via Dolorosa, the Way of Sorrow, which has been followed by pilgrims for centuries, and which corresponds, as far as is possible today, with the route Jesus would have taken.

Through the busy streets of the Old City we pause at each telling moment, or station, to share with the Lord in his desolation. We seek to draw closer to him as we walk in his steps, as we sense his suffering, and the resolution with which he struggled to endure his agony an d so accomplish his father’s will for each and every one of us.
