This Lent 2021 we continue weaving the threads that bind us together as one JM family by following Jesus on the Way of the Cross. Every Wednesday we will send you two videos focused on two Stations of the Cross. These videos are not ordinary videos! They are gateways to prayer, invitations to silence, roads to intimacy with Jesus and His Body ever-immersed in the Paschal Mystery of death and new life.
“Crossroads”, as the name suggests, will lead us to places of encounter – places where light and darkness meet, where faith and uncertainty co-exist, where choices and commitments happen. Our sisters, companions in mission and AFJM members spread throughout the world will bring us down their Roads and show us where the Cross continues to be present today. Their voices and testimonies invite us to place ourselves at the “CrossRoads” before the Crucified Lord and ask ourselves which path to follow now…
We invite you to enter slowly and deeply into the mystery and material of each Station with all of your senses allowing the sights, the sounds and the silence to touch you and to speak to you.
Each video will be accompanied by a page containing the translation in English, Spanish and French. Take note of the contemporary images of the Stations created by artist Bruno Desroche and on display in the Church where Saint Claudine was baptised here in Lyon – Saint Nizier.
Finally, a word of thanks to Rosemary Nicholson RJM (San Diego – USA) for contacting us with the seed of an idea that has blossomed and become “CrossRoads”.
