The Stations reflect our service and our journey as Christians who love Christ and seek to serve Him in the poor. This is our mission as Vincentians. This is our mission as Catholics.
When we look into the eyes of the poor we see Your suffering Son, Your love and compassion. While meditating on each station, we call to mind those we serve; all we have alienated in any way. We seek reconciliation for the times we have failed to think of the suffering Your son endured and the love You have for all Your children.
May St. Vincent de Paul accompany us and Blessed Frederic Ozanam walk with us on this Way of the Cross. We lift all those we serve up to the healing power of Your Son at each station. We cry out to You in the name of Your son and ask You to open our hearts to the infinite love which He poured out to us in salvation by His passion, death and resurrection. Amen
