Midlands Christians meditate upon Jesus’ journey to the cross

From South Carolina-

On this Good Friday, Sandy Rains will join her pastor and fellow parishioners at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in walking the Stations of the Cross, a solemn meditative experience aimed at re-creating Jesus’ own tortured journey from betrayal to crucifixion.

For Christians, particularly Roman Catholics and Protestants steeped in liturgical traditions, the walk is a central element of Holy Week, bringing home the suffering and sacrifice of Christ. Many Midlands churches will hold meditative services today devoted to the Stations of the Cross and Good Friday remembrance.

Rains was raised Roman Catholic and remembers going as a little girl with her mother to the service, lying on the pew as her mother participated in the liturgy.
