I just found this site. I’m not religious, although I was raised a Roman Catholic. This is a very strongly non-violent, anti-war interpretation of the Stations of the Cross.
My thanks and respect go to the Rev. Sebastian Mucilli and the members of Pax Christi USA, a worldwide Catholic peace movement. These guys don’t pull any punches and manage to integrate the call to worship with the call to peace and justice, Christian-style.
There are so many religious wing-nuts out there, it’s nice to come across a group whose values I share. The interpretation of the stations of the cross, shown via contemporary photos of scenes from the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, is very moving. Take a look.
(Background). In the Fall of 2005 Daniel Maguire, Professor of Ethics at Marquette University, delivered a lecture entitled The Lies of War. He dedicated his talk to a 10-year-old Afghan, Mohammed Noor. The boy was having Sunday dinner when an American bomb struck his home. He survived but with the loss of both eyes and both hands. Dr. Maguire reminded his audience, “The sightless eyes of this child should haunt us to the end of our days and sear on our souls the absolute need to not just pray for peace, but to do something to make it happen.”
