St. Luke's Mission of Mercy, located in Buffalo's impoverished East Side, prayed the Stations of the Cross in the broken neighborhoods and streets of the worst area of the second-poorest city in the U.S. It was a moving experience for all those present. Christ's passion and death was commemorated in a community marked with poverty, violence, and death. With each station, though, we remind ourselves of the power of the Cross: "We adore you, O Christ, and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross You have Redeemed the world". Please pray with us that Jesus may reach out to even these, our brothers and sisters in poverty's despair.
