St. Francis and the Stations of the CrossThe days began with the perfect Lenten prayer: the Stations of the Cross. The journal question for the night was: If I were St. Francis, watching the Passion of Jesus, I would be thinking... feeling... wondering...
St. Francis' Office of the Passion
Reflection on the Passion of Jesus continued with the small red book entitled The Geste of the Passion. It outlines St. Francis' Little Office, a series of hymns, psalms, antiphon or a dismissal prayer. It is called a geste, because it extols the valor and great deeds of a hero, such as King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. For Francis, the texts refer to Jesus, the Herald of the Great King.
Conferences were enhanced by participant sharing. Time was offered for one on one spiritual direction for those who desired additional assistance.
