Spiritual practice for Holy Week:
I'm grateful to Victoria Emily Jones for this wonderful resource that allows us to engage in the historic Christian devotional practice of metaphorically travelling the road Jesus took toward the cross. Throughout the audio tour of the Stations of the Cross, sometimes referred to as Via Dolorosa (“Way of Sorrows”) or Via Crucis (“Way of the Cross”), Jones invites us to consider the gravitas of biblical accounts of Jesus' ministry and suffering through the lens of American artwork. With this fresh perspective, she's written and recorded an audio commentary for 18 artworks currently on display at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. If you happen to be near the museum you can use the resources from her site to find each station in the museum while listening to her downloadable audio commentary.
I'm looking forward to prayerfully walking the way of suffering through this virtual tour, and hope you'll join me. If you happen to be able to go to the actual museum, I'd love to hear about that too!
