A tradition credited to St. Philip Neri is to visit 7 churches after The Mass of the Lord's Supper this evening in honor of the 7 stops (see below) Jesus made on the via crucis. Suggested prayers to say before the altar in each church vary, but a good standard is the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be.
1st Visit - Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. (Luke 22: 39-46)
2nd Visit - Jesus bound and taken before Annas. (John 18: 19-22)
3rd Visit - Jesus taken before the High Priest, Caiaphas. (Matthew 26:63-65)
4th Visit - Jesus taken before Pilate. (John 18:35-37)
5th Visit - Jesus taken before Herod. (Luke 23: 8-9, 11)
6th Visit - Jesus taken before Pilate again. (Matthew 27:22-26)
7th Visit - Jesus given the crown of thorns and led to his crucifixion. (Matthew 27:27-31)
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.
Spend 30 minutes in silence to reflect on your lenten journey and for quiet expectation of what's to come.
