Stations of the Cross
"Mary, my Mother, you were the first to live the Way of the Cross ... You were so desirous of everyone loving Him ... Take my hand as I make the Way of the Cross. Inspire me with those thoughts that will make me realize how much He loves me. Give me light to apply each station to my daily life and to remember my neighbor's needs ... Obtain for me the grace to understand the mystery, the wisdom and the Divine love as I go from scene to scene."
Please join us on the Way of the Cross at St. John of Rochester beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday evenings during Lent.
