This daily Stations of the Cross resource connects the writings of Leonardo Boff, O.F.M., to the realities of injustice in our world today.

"Photographs can powerfully pull us into someone else’s experience. As you use this Photo Journal to reflect during Lent, think about the sorrow, pain, and redemption of Jesus’ Last Day. 
Journey with Him as you walk through the Fifteen Stations of the Cross. Think about the ongoing suffering of those around us. Resolve to help others bear their cross. How do you see Jesus in the faces of the poor, the refugees, the migrants, and the homeless? Do you wipe their faces with compassion and seek to lift them up?"

Begin by reflecting on the following verse:


“The Way of the Cross, the painful journey 
of the Son of God and his brothers and sisters 
through the torments of this world, does have a real meaning.

We are destined and called to live life to the full:
joyous in our hope, confident in our love, 
and reconciled to the world, 
our fellow human beings, and God.”


—Leonardo Boff, O.F.M., Brazilian theologian and writer
(Quotes taken from Way of the Cross—Way of Justice by Leonardo Boff)
