Virgin of all virgins blest! Listen to my fond request: Let me share your grief divine

Fridays during Lent most Catholics attend The Stations of the Cross.  This practice started in the 16th century and was known as the Via Dolorosa (Sorrowful Way), or  the Way of the Cross.

Since some parishes are closed (like mine), you can still do this.  Here are two photo galleries I have done at two different locations:

The Stations of the Cross at St. Therese Chinese Catholic Church

The Stations of the Cross at Presence Resurrection Retirement Community

If you know someone who is home bound for whatever reason, please pass this along to them.

“Stations” can be done any time, not just Fridays during Lent.  During our current situation with the Coronavirus and the closing of churches and businesses, we need to walk with Our Lord more than ever.

Please join me and other Catholics (and some not-so-Catholics!) on my Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.

I also write for Catholic365.com on occasion, and CatholicMom.com every 4th Thursday of the month so take a moment and check them out.
