What would it have been like to walk with Jesus during his last days? How would it have felt to see him rise? How can Jesus’ experiences give us strength in our daily lives?
Sixth-graders tried to answer these questions during their presentation of the living Stations of the Cross, which has become a Lenten tradition at St. Paul the Apostle School. Students gained an appreciation of the difficulties of those final days, from Jesus being condemned to death to being nailed to the cross.
Joy was felt by not only the sixth-graders, but by all of the audience when Jesus (portrayed by Jimmy Lasher) appeared on stage, arms in the air, while everyone called out, “Jesus is risen! Jesus is alive!”
