The Way of the Cross in Jacmel

08 Apr

On Good Friday, April 2, Sisters Marilyn, Izzy and Julitta participated in the annual Way of the Cross that the Cathedral Church organizes for the city of Jacmel. At 6:30 a.m., we were on our way to the place where all the people were to meet. Each Station is decorated beautifully in a unique way. For the people, this is a privilege to be asked to decorate a Station. Hundreds of people participated.

“Let us bear all things thankfully, be it poverty, be it disease, be it anything else whatever: for he alone knows the things expedient for us…. Are we in poverty? Let us give thanks. Are we in sickness? Let us give thanks. Are we falsely accused? Let us give thanks. When we suffer affliction, let us give thanks.… Affliction is a great good. “Narrow is the way,” so that affliction thrusts us into the narrow way. He who is not pressed by affliction cannot enter. For he who afflicts himself in the narrow is he who also enjoys ease, but he that spreads himself out does not enter in and suffers from being, so to say, wedged in.” Saint John Chrysostom

Our kids joined us for the Way of the Cross.
The 5th Station…Simon helps to carry the Cross.
Lord, in your mercy, may we live as you live, die as you die, and triumph as you triumph—may we cling to your cross until your resurrection comes to life fully in us.
