Living Stations of the Cross, a Lenten Devotion

(Molly)
The Stations of the Cross is a popular Catholic devotion, especially during this holy season of Lent. Many parishes pray the Stations on Friday evening, perhaps preceded by a fish fry or soup supper. I wanted to give a bit of publicity for an upcoming event, the Living Stations of the Cross, which will take place at our parish this week. We have attended this very prayerful and reverent re-inaction of the passion in the past, and have found the evening to be incredibly powerful. The presenters are all youth from the parish and their portrayal includes beautiful musical accompaniment. The Living Stations will be presented on Thursday, February 28 and Friday, February 29 at 7:00pm. Friday evening will also include Adoration and Benediction. So, if you're in the area and wish to experience this powerful evening, join us at the Church of Saint Paul in Ham Lake, MN.

Oh, and I have to mention that our darling Maximilian will be portraying "Baby Jesus". (Baby Jesus, of course, isn't specifically part of the Stations of the Cross, but they do begin their story with the Presentation of Jesus in the temple.)

Molly- Max looks SO grown up! I wouldn't have even recognized him except that he is obviously too little to be Aiden. :) Hehehe.....

Also, I realize I just spelled Aidan wrong. I knew it ended like Brendan's, but at this early hour I was thinking Brendan spelled his name en. Oops. :)
