Solidarity with the persecuted Church

The Catholic Herald in the UK recently published Maronite Archbishop Samir Nassar’s reflections as A Way of the Cross in solidarity with the persecuted Church. Archbishop Samir is the Maronite Archbishop of Damascus, and he serves as Episcopal Shepherd of the Syrian Commission for the Family.

Here, for the convenience of any who may wish to use this Way of the Cross in their parishes this Lent, is a booklet (gently adapted) and formatted for double-sided printing on US Letter size paper (8.5″ x 11″).

It is offered in hopes that, as we journey toward Jerusalem this Lent and Easter in solidarity with our persecuted sisters and brothers in the Church throughout the world, we may together bear witness to the power of the cross to overcome death and the grave, and to open to us all the resurrection life of Jesus Christ our Lord.
