The pastor forwarded an email from one of our students asking about Friday stations during Lent. Are they “traditional,” we were asked. Does a priest lead them?
Good questions. What constitutes a “traditional” way of the cross? For many people, the way it was when they first prayed it. Are John Paul II’s scriptural stations a no-no?
How many priests lead the parish’s Way of the Cross these days?
Sit in the purple chair, if you would. How does your parish pray the Stations? How would you ordain it, were you more than an armchair liturgist?
