Good Friday

This was new to us, and a unique experience - a living, moving Stations of the Cross.  We started at Pier 39 and walked to Aquatic Park in San Francisco, stopping at various points while young people silently portraying Jesus and others acted out scenes from the Good Friday liturgy.  At each station, narrators added brief reflection commentary about current issues in our world that relate to the message of Christ, reminding us not to separate families, to respect life at all stages, to care for refugees and those in poverty.  It was beautifully done.  The 'icing on the cake' was that the whole thing was accompanied by a moving band on the back of a truck - great music - and even a police escort.  Fantastic to be joined by our friends Kathleen and Virginia, too!
