About the Via Lucis

In December 2001, the Holy See promulgated a Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy, which commended the Via Lucis as follows:

A pious exercise called the Via Lucis has developed and spread to many regions in recent years. Following the model of the Via Crucis, the faithful process while meditating on the various appearances of Jesus – from his Resurrection to his Ascension – in which he showed his glory to the disciples who awaited the coming of the Holy Spirit (cf. John 14, 26; 16, 13-15; Lk 24, 49), strengthened their faith, brought to completion his teaching on the Kingdom and more closely defined the sacramental and hierarchical structure of the Church.

Holy Saturday Reflection: Mary, Our Queen and Mother

Mary, Our Queen and Mother Live from Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center. Holy Saturday has rightly been defined by some as "the longest day." With no liturgies or the Eucharistic celebration, Christians wait in silence and relive the dismay of the apostles after the death of Jesus. In this video, Fr. Daniel Pajerski, LC reflects on Mary’s roll as our mother and queen derived from her sufferings on Good Friday and Holy Saturday.
