Stations of the Cross

09 Mar

On Friday at about 3:00 p.m., we heard music and prayers through a loud speaker. We looked out from our balcony and saw people gathering with chairs in front of our house. We learned that the Stations of the Cross would take place at 4:00 p.m. People came from everywhere. The Stations lasted about two hours with singing, prayers and reflections. This was our first Friday during Lent here in Jacmel. We now know that every Friday during Lent the people gather for outdoor Stations in different parts of the town. This weekly gathering leads up to Good Friday when everyone gathers in the center of town for outdoor Stations of the Cross with the Bishop.

    I was very much touched to hear about Stations of the Cross in Jacmel. What faith the people have. They follow Christ’s Sufferings despite their own sufferings.

    Prayerful wishes,
    Sister Virginia

    It is truly amazing that in a Third World Country such as Haiti, the faith is so much deeper then here in the land of plenty. The Stations become a real connection with the passion and death of our Lord. May their faith enkindle our faith and deepen our relationship with our God. Keep on praising and giving thanks to God. PAX ET BONUM!
