Holy Week – Stations of the Cross

Stations of the CrossI find the journeying through Holy Week with a group of people a very moving experience and for the first three days, Monday-Wednesday, we are moving round the compound to various Stations of the Cross. The fifteen on Monday had swelled to twenty-three on Tuesday. With different voices reading passages of Scripture and others involved in various actions and taking responsibility, like Simon of Cyrene, to carry the cross it is a shared experience. There is a lot of noise and distraction in the compound but that’s exactly how Jerusalem must have been during the Passover Festival, but though most people missed it, something of world-changing significance was taking place.
