The Faces of Friday

The Faces of Friday
_____________________________________

The Lenten season invites us to explore the redemptive suffering of Christ Jesus. The way of the cross becomes an intentional prayer to view all human suffering.

These faces show us that suffering leads to new life and healing in the face of Christ Jesus. This version of the Stations of the Cross articulates the raw suffering we encounter daily at the Downtown Chapel in Portland, Oregon. These stories of human sorrow open up the story of Christ in every time and place.

Praying The Faces of Friday

Faces of Friday may be played one station at a time especially for individual prayer. Sit with the suffering you hear and feel the force of circumstances and narratives of each person. Reflect on the story of Christ. Spend some time writing in a journal or praying silently with each of the questions and statements at the end of each station.

Faces of Friday may also be viewed in its entirety in a group setting. Pray the stations with adequate silent reflection leading to conversation and discussion. Explore the role of Christ’s redemptive suffering in each person’s story and connect it to the suffering of all people.
