Justice Action Bulletin: Pax Christi Way of the Cross walk; Immigration demonstrations scheduled - National Catholic Reporter

NEW YORK — Pax Christi Metro New York announced in a March 7 press release that it is organizing the 36th annual Good Friday Way of the Cross across Manhattan. The stations will connect Jesus' suffering and death to the continued suffering of people around the world, and include contemplation of how to follow Jesus' "counter-cultural" example.

This year's Way of the Cross is dedicated to former Brooklyn Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Sullivan, who died in a car accident in 2013. Sullivan led the opening prayer for the Way of the Cross for most of its history. This year, Msgr. Kevin Sullivan, director of Catholic Charities of the New York archdiocese, will lead the opening prayer.

According to the press release, suffering people referenced in the walk include immigrants, people who lack health care and "victims of poverty, hunger and homelessness, poor education, a polluted environment, human trafficking, an unjust prison system, militarism, religious intolerance, nuclear weapons proliferation and gun violence."
