Good Friday Way of the Cross over the Brooklyn Bridge connected with closeness & prayers of Pope Benedict

| | Comments (0)
The Secretariat of State of the Holy See has asked me to convey the following message:

Way of the Cross 2010.jpg
His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI sends greetings and the assurance of closeness in prayer to all attending the Good Friday Stations of the Cross organized by Communion and Liberation in New York City and in the other cities throughout the United States. It is his hope that by accompanying the Redeemer along the path leading to calvary they will draw ever closer to Him in His loving obedience to the Father's Will and His redemptive solidarity with suffering humanity, and be led to deeper conversion, more fervent faith and generous commitment to the spread of God's kingdom of reconciliation, justice and peace. Commending all present to the intercession of Our Lady of Sorrows, the Holy Father cordially imparts his apostolic blessing as a pledge of Easter joy and hope.

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone
Secretary of State

With prayerful good wishes, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Archbishop Pietro Sambi Apostolic Nuncio


There is a plenary indulgence granted to the faithful who

1. devoutly assist at the adoration of the Cross in the solemn liturgical action of Good Friday; or

2. personally make the pious Way of the Cross, or devoutly unite themselves to the Way of the Cross while it is being led by the Supreme Pontiff and broadcast live on television or radio.
