Via Dolorosa - The Way of the Cross.

Crown of thorns picture with John 3:30

This Holy Week is very different isn’t it? No public services in churches, no Way of the Cross and no Easter Mass! If you think of about it, this is probably how it was during the actual day of Jesus’ Passion. All His disciples had run away as they were scared after Jesus’s arrest. Only St John and Mother Mary followed Jesus through His Passion. They too couldn’t help Him, but they walked with Him. None of Jesus’ followers were with Him. Would you walk with Jesus as He carries the cross for you? Would you keep Him company today?
