Worship on the Internet

The following was passed on to me by a fellow seminarian. Whether you adhere to its stance on violence and war or not, I found it a compelling example of the church’s engagement in the world using the medium of social networking. These Stations of the Cross were written by Rev. Sebatian L. Muccilli for the Roman Catholic Peace Movement, PAX CHRISTI, and dedicated to all the victims of the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, civilian and military.

  1. Wow — thanks for sharing this! I hadn’t run across it before, and find it very powerful.

  2. Wow, this is powerful – would be interesting to experience in worship. I couldn’t help but think that the stations could be celebrated in multiple places simultaneously, with feeds to the various places of worship of the liturgy and those gathered elsewhere. A kind of way to capture the enormity of war.

    BTW I love the title of your blog.

  3. How powerful to see and to experience and to feel that the stations of the cross are alive today!!! Too often , we ask ourselves why is the bible relevant today…here lies the answer. We are in a war…and for what…what is the cost….what is Christ and the cross calling us to do? These powerful images should be seen by everyone.

  4. I wonder how this would work if one used the photos on a big screen as going through the stations of the cross. Thank you, Libbie for sharing.

  5. Libbie, this was an amazing and powerful journey to travel with Christ and with people in the midst of war. It is so easy to forget that we are truly never NOT at war, just as Christ continues to suffer for our sins. Thanks for sharing this–it will remain with me for a long, long time.

  6. Wow!

    Thank you for this link. These stations are very moving. This is a resource I will definitely hold onto.
