Ragin' Cajun Catholics put on live Stations of the Cross

Ragin' Cajun Catholics put on live Stations of the Cross

For many, watching the familiar story play out is a ritual that helps them keep in mind the meaning behind the holiday.

Why is it called "Good" Friday? "I then created a visual depiction of all that through this model", he said, explaining he had been creating exhibitions in this spot for the past three years. Also, some people deliberately create a bare appearance in their homes and churches by removing all flowers and shiny objects.

"It seems like they get a little better every year", he said.

"I wanted to be able to be here and show what I think of God and Jesus Christ", he said. "It has a more profound meaning than just hunting for eggs". The first two years it was held at stops around Highland Park United Methodist.

Rogers and McCown said it was encouraging to see unity across denominations and backgrounds as members from multiple churches participated in Via Dolorosa. "I'm just sad he's not taller", she said. I love that it's an ecumenical service and walk.

The re-enactment on Friday started in the parking lot across from Our Lady of Angels church. God - in his infinite mercy and love, however, does not want us to suffer the consequences of our sins.

Missionaries, too, bring hope, he said, because they are the ones challenging humanity's "sleeping conscience" by risking their lives to serve others, including immigrants and the exploited.

"On Saturday we wait, the bible tells us that Jesus is dead", he added.

The name Good Friday is considered appropriate and pertinent even though it marks the crucifixion of Jesus ― as the suffering and death of Jesus marked the fulfillment of God's plan to save his people from their sins.

One of the shootouts broke out as police chased auto thieves who had stolen a vehicle, and the other when gunmen attacked a local police station, said Roberto Alvarez Heredia, security spokesman for the west-coast state of Guerrero.

It was all done as a way to celebrate Good Friday, the day Christians around the world commemorate Christ's death and sacrifice.
