'Voice' of children, teens to be part of Good Friday Via Crucis meditation
April 08, 2011
Mother Maria Rita Piccione has told Vatican Radio that the meditations that will be read during the Way of the Cross on Good Friday at the Colosseum in Rome will “give space … to the voice of children and teens, who sometimes are offended, injured, and exploited.”
“Here I am referring not just to the cases of abuse that have been talked about so much, because the problem is much vaster and regards all humanity,” she said. In contemplating the Passion of Christ, she said that “my gaze, my listening stopped at this level: the level of the human heart ... because it is like a laboratory where the fate of what happens on a global scale is decided.”
“It is necessary to seek the face of God who enlightens even the thickest darkness,” she told L’Osservatore Romano in a separate interview.
