Catholic Youth Parramatta

WYD Stations of the Cross


ROME REPORTS: Surrounded by young people from different parts of the world, Pope Benedict XVI has participated in the Station's of the Cross along Madrid's Paseo de Recoletos.

“Dear young friends, may Christ’s love for us increase your joy and encourage you to go in search of those less fortunate,” the Holy Father said.

“You are open to the idea of sharing your lives with others, so be sure not to pass by on the other side in the face of human suffering, for it is here that God expects you to give of your very best: your capacity for love and compassion.”

The Way of the Cross ended with the Pope's blessing and the singing of the anthem of the WYD.

For the special occasion, sculptures used for Spain's Holy Week were also used during the procession.
