‘The Via Dolorosa’

As Americans we have not grown up in a place where outrageous cruelty, publicly carried out by the state, is an everyday occurance. But in the Roman world of the First Century, it was. And Our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified. Not for any wrong He ever did, but for our sins.

The Via Dolorosa, sung by Sandi Patti, memorializes this. I don’t find it an easy thing to contemplate. I pray I never do. Better to be in awe of it than to take it for granted.

  1. Oh, how I love this. Sad, yes, but true. In a former church I attended, there was a singer with a very similar voice, and I gave her a copy of the song on disc. She listened, learned every word, even the Spanish, and sang it as a solo for the church. It absolutely astonished the entire church We were wiped out. I will never forget that.
