PASSION JOURNEY

Holy Week's 14 Stations of the Cross

In imitation of the Spiritual Pilgrims going to Jerusalem, early Churches placed plaques of the 14 Stations around the Nave of the Sanctuary, for believers to follow their own Spiritual Pilgrimage.

Offered as Silent Personal Reflection & Prayer

First Presbyterian Church of Skaneateles, New York, 2018

In renewal of our lives make known Your heavenly glory. Open our eyes to see Your hand at work in our time of anguish as well as in the splendor of creation and beauty of human life. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me. Mels me. Mold me. Fill me. Use me!
