A Scriptural Journey

Based on the Stations celebrated by Pope John Paul II on Good Friday 1991 and inspired by the writings of St. John Henry Newman

Compiled for the Men of Saint Joseph by Neil Taylor

We are all called to pick up our cross. As Christ said “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. Those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. What will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life?” (Mt. 16:24–26)

In this season of Lent, we are called to contemplate our past, and the days to come. As we prepare to celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord this time of prayer and fasting, is a time to remember that we are also called to follow Christ more deeply. By following Christ on his journey to the Cross through scripture reading, we hope to understand more fully what we are called to do in his name.

We, the Men of St. Joseph will develop a more profound relationship with God as we journey through the streets of Eastbourne and along the South Downs. Our pilgrimage of prayer takes place in the hours of darkness, a time of quiet prayerful contemplation.
