Via Dolorosa "Way of Grief"

Yesterday on Holy Tuesday I went to pray with my friends at St. Johns Episcopal Church. The Holy Week meditation was the fourteen traditional stations of the cross, sometimes known as the "Way of the Cross." As we prayed I found myself spiritually in Jerusalem walking the Via Dolorosa with my Lord, which is believed to be the road our Lord Jesus traveled to Golgotha. For me this is what good holy week liturgy is all about, being able to once again enter into the mystery of the passion and death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as we await the celebration of His glorious resurrection.
Have a blessed Holy Week.
