Anywhere in the world, from Chicago to Tokyo, you can walk with Jesus, see him embrace his mother and meet the daughters of Jerusalem, be crucified and buried. This is a beautiful expression of the core of our faith, which is that Jesus embraced the dramas of every human life, our triumphs and failures, our joys and sorrows. In the Stations of the Cross, we remember how the Lord is with us, especially when we seem to be stuck and have lost the way forward. He walks with us, and trips with us when we stumble and helps us to our feet again.
