Downtown McAllen Stations of the Cross
I commend the now disbanded Holy Spirit Peace & Justice group for organizing this year's Way of the Cross through downtown McAllen without the support of the parish that they have been a part of for more than twenty years. I have walked with them for the past five years and will continue to do so for as long as I can. Nothing during the entire Holy Week reminds me or brings me closer to the suffering of the present day Christ amongst us.
Thanks to all of you for once a year giving me the opportunity to remember that Christ is alive today in those considered the least among us, and in ourselves called to be His body: His eyes that see the suffering, His hands that heal, His heart full of love and compassion, His determination to make possible the kingdom of God here on earth, even if it means dying again on a cross.
