Friday stations

It’s another Friday in Lent. It’s a day of sorrow and penance as we remember Jesus’ death on the cross.

Many of us are fasting in a bit of an extra way today. Some are abstaining from meat and other pleasures. Others are gathering in churches to pray the Stations of the Cross.

As community, we unite and remember the challenge and truth: Jesus suffered pain and gave of himself for our sake, because that’s the nature of true love. Truly, love willingly gives of oneself (even suffers) for the good of the other.

Thank you, Jesus, for loving us and giving of yourself for our sake! Amen!
