The Way of the Cross with Saint Francis by Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity

Sister JulieAnn Sheahan

March 24, 2018

During this coming Holy Week, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite you to pray The Way of the Cross with Saint Francis.

Grant that we may do for your sake alone what you want us to do, and always want what pleases you. – Saint Francis of Assisi

Sister Victoria Masil’s paintings show Saint Francis of Assisi’s great devotion to Jesus crucified and his desire that it be a special part of the life of every Franciscan. He identified with our Lord’s sufferings to such an extent that he was gifted with the marks of the Passion, the Stigmata. This love is portrayed by the placing of the saint as a figure in each of the stations. Sister Ruth Ann Myers and Sister Jerianne Stelmach contributed to the publication of the station books used by our Sisters.

Saint Francis, Lover of the Crucified, pray for us. Lord Jesus crucified, have mercy on us.
