Solidarity Way of the Cross

Women at the Heart of Change


The Way of the Cross offers us the opportunity to accompany Jesus in his march toward death and his burial. This was not a defeat, however, as death had no power over him. Jesus the Christ is risen. He is living.

Like Jesus, every day, women are carrying the Cross in our world. Women of courage denounce the injustices, inequalities, violence, abuses and contempt that burden them. They look toward a better future and continue their march with hope. This Way of the Cross offers you an opportunity to show your solidarity with women and men who are working to build a world of dignity, respect, justice, peace and equality.

"As far as personal rights are concerned, there is an urgent need to achieve real equality in every area: equal pay for equal work, protection for working mothers, fairness in career advancements, equality of spouses with regard to family rights and the recognition of everything that is part of the rights and duties of citizens in a democratic State. This is a matter of justice but also of necessity." Saint John Paul II, Letter to Women , June 29, 1995, n. 4.   Like Jesus, every day, women are carrying the Cross in our world. Women of courage  denounce the injustices, inequalities, violence, abuses and contempt that burden them. They look toward a better future and continue their march with hope. This Way of the Cross offers you an opportunity to show your solidarity with women and men who are working to build a world of dignity, respect, justice, peace and equality.
