Bringing Good News to the World

Way of the Cross - A.Kelly

Opening Prayer:

By Anthony Kelly, C.Ss.R.

Holy God, Loving and Merciful One, we come to you in the darkness of our world. The weight of our cares and our responsibilities, of our struggles and longings, lies heavy upon us.

Yet, in our hope we know our paths lead to you, that your Holy Spirit is within us, and that Jesus has gone before us as our way.

Because he bore the cross of all the world, we gather now to follow him,
to receive from him the peace the world cannot give, the joy that no one can take from us, and the energies of new life.
