Devotion of the Way of the Cross in Medjugorje

date: 20.02.2015.

Every Lent we are in a special way meditating on the passion of Christ, especially we do that in the devotion of the Way of the Cross, that we pray in the church and in families. The Way of the Cross in the parish takes place on Fridays at 2 p.m. on Cross Mountain and in the parish church after the evening Holy Mass;  at the branch churches (Šurmanci, Vionica, Miletina) at 4 p.m. Devotion of the Way of the Cross began on Cross Mountain in the beginning of Our Lady's apparitions. After1981, many pilgrims joined parishioners from all surrounding places and from the world. When pilgrims climb Cross Mountain, they can all have personal encounter with Jesus in his passion as well as to discover his love. The stations were initially marked by wooden crosses, and in 1988 bronze reliefs that are work of Italian artist, prof. Carmello Puzzolo, depicting Our Lady on each one of them. Parish prays the Way of the Cross every Friday at 2 p.m.
