By celebrating the Stations of the Cross, we symbolically live the passion of Jesus and his painful path to the cross.
We aregoing to walk this way of the cross meeting our brothers and sisters who, like Jesus on his way to the cross, are deprived of freedom, considered as objects and forced to do what they do not want.
Today Jesus lives his passion again in these children, these women and these men who are victims of forced migration and human trafficking.
May this Way of the Cross be for us too, a path of hope and of commitment so that these sisters and brothers may live the resurrection of a new beginning, and that we may consider a world without slavery, without human trafficking.
