Stations of the Cross

Last week our Borderlands group participated in the Stations of the Cross at Our Lady of San Juan de Valle. It was a powerful time which combined the power and meaning of the cross with the power and meaning of our experiences in the Rio Grande Valley. This time of meditation made the cross come alive for me in a new way, a way I’ve never experienced before.

For this first experience of the stations, I was assigned only one, “Jesus was Crucified.” This experienced left me wanting to do more. Oddly enough, as of tomorrow, I will have fourteen days until my spring semester starts–the same number of stations. So, starting tomorrow morning I will be doing a 14-day stations of the cross meditation. I hope people who read them will find some sort of inspiration from them but the primary exercise is to help me continue to find my theological voice and process the trip to the border I just returned from.
