Stational Liturgy

You will see that the Bishop is travelling round the Diocese in Lent to celebrate the Sacrament of Confession in various centres. In doing this, he is doing something very ancient and traditional for Lent. This could also be done by celebrating a Penitential Procession and Mass at the place where the procession stops. This kind of Lenten liturgy around a diocese or city is known as Stational Liturgy. It is this that we imitate this Sunday. It is concrete reminder of the spiritual journey we all make through Lent towards Holy Week and the Easter Triduum [3 holy days]. Because it is a spiritual journey, some call it a pilgrimage, but the steps of this journey are not taken with our feet, but with our Lenten devotions and disciplines. It is path of conversion towards spiritual renewal. Walking the Way of the Cross in the devotion of the Stations is another reminder of this same point.
