Throughout the season of Lent, the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer will pray the Stations of the Cross on Fridays after the 5:30 PM Mass. All are welcome.
For those unable to make it, you can use the following audio of the Stations recorded last night. But be forewarned . . . it’s poor quality can add to its penitential character.
Just in time for Lent, Magnificat has released Fr. Romanus Cessario’s The Seven Last Words of Jesus. A rich examination of Christ’s final utterances from the cross, this collection gathers the meditations Fr. Cessario preached last Good Friday in St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Using the Church’s theological, spiritual, and artistic tradition to unlock the secret of each “word,” Fr. Cessario makes plain the good news Our Lord revealed even to his dying breath–he has a divine and insatiable love for sinners.
In his foreward to the book, Edward Cardinal Egan writes:
“In the name of the thousands who heard Father Cessario on Good Friday 2008 in St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the thousands more who will have an opportunity to read and meditate on these pages, and in my own name was well, I express my admiration and heartfelt gratitude to this extraordinary theologian and preacher.”
