A MEDITATION ON THE WAY OF THE CROSS
The Way of the Cross, a traditional Christian devotion that dates back to the fourth century, traces the final hours of Christ on earth as he journeys towards Calvary. It remains a popular devotion in community worship during the liturgical season of Lent but is also widely performed privately at any time of the year.
In this DVD, the passion of Christ suffered over two thousand years ago is linked to his passion today as he continues to suffer in his mystical body - in the widespread suffering of humanity around the world and most especially in Africa.
A Meditation on the Way of the Cross is brought to you in vivid images of the passion of Christ in the African context as you contemplate both the past redemptive sufferings of Jesus and his agony and desolation in the world today. It is a prayer experience which could help motivate you to transform your life and inspire you to alleviate the present sufferings of Christ on earth today.
