The Center for Action and Contemplation presents
The Way of the Cross
Friday, April 22, 2011
Good Friday and Earth Day
This year, Way of the Cross falls on a day that will be celebrated both as Good Friday and Earth Day. Join the Center for Action and Contemplation at its property in Prewitt, located 100 miles from Albuquerque and between Grants and Gallup. Participants will walk through the stations with mindfulness and gratitude for the life of Jesus and the life of Mother Earth.
The Way of the Cross calls us to recall the suffering of Jesus in a particular way. Jesus came to show us how to give our life and our death for others. This year we focus in a special way on the groanings, the crying in pain and the deep longing for liberation of Mother Earth as she too is waiting for Christ's second return. (Romans 8.18-25)
Begins at noon, but please arrive at least a half hour early.
For Directions, see below.
Bring wide-brimmed hat, closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, a lawn/camp chair, an umbrella, and water.
Food will not be provided in accordance with a day of fasting, but please if you have dietary needs do not hesitate to bring a lunch or snack
