During the recently concluded season of Lent, we journeyed through increased prayer, fasting, abstinence and almsgiving in order to have a more meaningful Lenten experience. With the praying of the Stations of the Cross, Jesus’ Passion was reflected on and the comparison of the activities at each station facilitated personal introspection about our own dealings with each other, such as:
Do we condemn others to mental and spiritual deaths, bearing false witness do we place crosses on others, do we trample others, beating them into the ground when they fall, etc.? Or, were we encouraged to make the effort to be like Simon of Cyrene or Veronica in someone’s life, etc.?
