Freshman at Mater Ecclesiae write Stations of the Cross


Greenville, RI – ‘A sad saint is a sorry saint,’ St. Teresa of Avila is famously quoted as saying. It seems that Jesus would agree; he tells us to remain in him ‘so that your joy may be complete.’ And yet he also tells us to take up our cross and follow him – an idea that probably comes to mind more readily, given the liturgical season.

Lent could make sad saints out of us all, but that’s not God’s idea. The freshmen class at Mater Ecclesiae College has decided to remind us that as Fulton Sheen put it, we start with the fast only to end with the feast.

The freshmen, 12 young women in their first year of discerning consecrated life, have written prayers and reflections for each of the Stations of the Cross, and compiled them into a Way of Cross entitled Joy in Suffering. They hope that their Lenten reflections can benefit others as well!
