The Stations of the Cross with Bishop Damien Mead
During the Covid-19 Lockdown over Easter 2020 the Bishop recorded this devotion for Good Friday in his private domestic chapel in the garden of his home. He invites you to make a spiritual pilgrimage to the Holy land and join him as you walk the Way of the Cross. Remembering in prayer those effected by the virus and all those who are working so hard to care for others. Bishop Mead thanks Fr Jonathan Munn Obl/OSB for allowing his book “Reflections on the Stations of the Cross” to be the resource upon which much of this meditation is based.
