“The pious exercise of the Way of the Cross represents the sorrowful journey that Jesus Christ made with the cross on His shoulders, to die on Calvary for love of us. We should, therefore, practice this devotion with the greatest possible fervour, placing ourselves in spirit beside our Saviour as He walked this sorrowful way, uniting our tears with His, and offering to Him both our compassion and our gratitude.”
St. Alphonsus Maria de’ Liguori
Bishop, Doctor of the Church,
Founder of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Redemptorists)
“May the Cross always be our bed of rest,
our school of perfection,
our beloved heritage.
For this reason we must never separate
the Cross from Jesus’ love;
otherwise it would become a weight,
which in our weakness we could not carry.”
St. “Padre” Pio of Pietrelcina
