The Way of the Cross on Good Friday, 10th April 2020.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]We gathered this year in The College Chapel as a ‘virtual’ school community – unable to attend in person but connected by our faith.

Throughout the liturgy, you are invited to follow the Stations of the Cross by the celebrated early 20th Irish artist Sean Keating that hang in the College Chapel.  You will hear the voices representing the Clongowes community of students, parents, staff and members of our Jesuit Community.

The voices you hear – sung and spoken – have been captured electronically from homes across the country and overseas and are brought together to guide us through this beautiful liturgy this evening.

As we start our journey on The Way of the Cross liturgy, we ask you to consider three things:

  • The Way of the Cross in itself is a prayer.   Open your heart to be moved and express your response through prayer.
  • This is an imaginative exercise, use what you are seeing and hearing to move your heart and know Jesus’ love for you as he suffered and died on the cross.
  • Be led to gratitude and solidarity with your brothers and sisters.  Think of those that are suffering in the world today, pray for them and express your gratitude for all that there is to be thankful for in your own life.

Easter offers us real hope.  It reveals the immensity of God’s love and a glimpse of the future he has planned for each one of us in rising from the dead.  Through Easter we see how the love of God shines through darkness and discouragement and death. We have a sure hope that there is a meaning and purpose in all that happens to us.
