Hundreds of Catholic, Anglican faithfuls joined the walking pilgrimage of the annual “Way of the Cross” Good Friday procession starting in different church stations across the country, the day Jesus Christ was crucified and nailed on the cross.
The day is part of Easter celebrations when Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus.
In Blantyre, several hundred people took part in a joint ‘Way of the Cross’ procession by Ndirande Holy Ghost Catholic Parish and Ndirande Anglican, to recall the day when Jesus of Nazareth was crucified in about 33 A.D. in Jerusalem.
Members of congregation carried the wooden cross across 15 stations of the cross. The walk began from Holy Ghost Catholic Church and ended at Ndirande Anglican Church.
In his sermon, Fr Benito Masuwa said Good Friday is a “day of fast, penance and sacrifice” after a Lenton period.
Fr Masuwa said “Jesus gave his life to save the mankind from sin and misery.”
Catholic and Protestant churches will celebrate Easter, commemorating the Resurrection of Jesus, on Sunday.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
