Stations of the Cross from the Cathedral of Saint Patrick

Posted on April 05, 2020 in: News, Reflections, Lent

Stations of the Cross from the Cathedral of Saint Patrick

The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims to Jerusalem who would retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. Later, for the many who wanted to pass along the same route, but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that eventually took the form of the fourteen stations currently found in almost every church. 

The object of the stations is to help the Christian faithful make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.

‘Little Miracle of Lille’: How a Candlelight Mass Gathers Hundreds of Young People Every Week in France
“The good makes no noise,” St. Francis de Sales would say of Lille’s candlelight Mass.  Indeed, while France regularly shows itself to be at the forefront of the de-Christianization of the West and recently made headlines for its constitutionalization of abortion, the embers of Christian renewal are already igniting — quietly yet powerfully — on the country’s northern horizon. Every Tuesday evening at 10 p.m., between 800 and 900 students converge on the historic St. Joseph’s Chapel at Lille Catholic University for a...
