Cycle A: Way of the Cross According to Matthew/Mateo

Eugene LaVerdiere SSS

Matthew’s Gospel is the story of Jesus, a shepherd for God’s people of Israel (2:6), whose name brought hope to the Gentiles (12:21). Matthew’s community, still close to its Jewish origins, had to choose between the synagogue, the people from whom they came, and the Church, the people now formed in Christ. Together in Matthew’s Way of the Cross we follow Jesus and his followers to Jerusalem and Golgotha, the Place of the Skull.

Cycle B: Way of the Cross According to Mark/Marcos

Eugene LaVerdiere SSS

Mark’s Gospel is the story of “the beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (1:1). Mark’s story to Christians who felt certain the end of time had come was the story of Jesus’ journey to the cross, a journey to new life, an extraordinary new beginning signaled by Jesus’ resurrection. Together in Mark’s Way of the Cross we follow Jesus on his journey to Golgotha.

Cycle C: Way of the Cross According to Luke/Lucas

Eugene LaVerdiere SSS

As the early Christians met resistance and internal difficulties, the image of Jesus, ever loving and forgiving, became blurred. Luke’s Gospel tells the story “of the events that have been fulfilled among us, just as those who were eyewitnesses from the beginning and ministers of the word have handed them down to us” (1: 1-2). We too, will be strengthened in faith and love through Luke’s Way of the Cross as we follow Jesus to Jerusalem and the place of crucifixion.

Good Friday: Way of the Cross According to John/Juan

Eugene LaVerdiere SSS

John’s Gospel tells the story of Jesus, the Word of God, and the great signs he did, that all might believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that in believing all might have life in his name (20: 30-31). John wrote for a community at grips with the most basic issues of life and meaning. Then as now, the answer was in the person of Jesus. And so we turn to John for this Way of the Cross, following Jesus as he is raised up and draws all people to himself.

Lent: Way of the Cross with Saint Paul

Eugene LaVerdiere SSS

Paul’s very life was a real Way of the Cross, from his conversion on the Damascus road, onto Jerusalem, and finally to his Martyrdom at Rome. Paul the persecutor of Christians became Paul the persecuted. In baptism, Paul died to Christ and was buried with Christ. Let us follow with Paul as he takes up his cross and follows our Lord and Savior on the Way of the Cross.

Sacred Way: Way of the Cross

Hal Percy

Jesus carried His cross and He stumbled and fell on the paving stones of old Jerusalem. Today we follow Him on that sacred way, pausing with Him at each station, in our Christian journey to God. Through the voice of Jesus and all personages encountered on the way, we reflect on this journey from a layman’s point of view.
