This is a special Good Friday posting, depicting the Missionaries of the Poor Brothers at the monastery in Labuan Bajo solemnly praying the Stations of the Cross during the Lenten season. In addition, we have included some images of the same Stations of the Cross from the ‘Madonna Mountain’ in Labuan Bajo. This hill, on the edge of the town, which is covered in thick forest, has a ‘Way of the Cross’ track leading to the very top of the hill. At the top there are beautiful statues of the crucified Christ and the Madonna. The top of the hill is wonderfully serene and peaceful, and a marvellous place for prayer and meditation. Please ponder on the photographs so that, together, we may appreciate the significance of Holy Week.
We adore You O Christ, and we praise You. Because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world
