Christians remember Good Friday by carrying cross up Main Street

Christ on the cross

Christ on the cross

That was one message of almost 200 people who prayed as they took turns carrying a 200-pound wooden cross up Main Street in downtown Bloomington on Friday afternoon.

The doubts, however, have enraged Catholic conservatives, who have lost their patience with a pope who seems to care less about doctrine than dialogue, especially with atheists and people of other faiths.

"This is when they took Christ and they flogged him 39 times, and then he walked over a mile up to Golgotha's Hill where they crucified our Savior", Herndon said. I found this church at a point when I was really lost in life, and I don't think I would be where I am today without all the support and love from the people there. The scenes depict Jesus' day of crucifixion. "It is touching, so I wanted to see it", said Champagnie, a member of the Praise City Deliverance Centre on Asquith Street in Kingston.

Coordinator of the event, Yaneth Ruvio says she wants people to be touched by the performance and remember all that Jesus sacrificed for our sins.

The group made multiple stops along the way to reflect on the Stations of the Cross while reading scripture and singing songs.

Musikuwa led Christians in observing the event that had 14 where they laid wreaths at a place that symbolises the biblical Golgotha.

"The Way of the Cross started to say to people, 'If we're followers of God, we can't just worship inside churches behind the walls".

Ree Rogers, member of Highland Park United Methodist, said there is nowhere else she would rather be on Good Friday than walking the Via Dolorosa.

Chilima was India and arrived Thursday just in time for the Way of the Cross which he participates every year.

"There is no church service and everybody come in and cleans the church to put it back together for Easter Sunday".
