TORONTO, JULY 26, 2002 (Zenit.org).- World Youth Day participants were expected to participate this evening in downtown Toronto in a Stations of the Cross that put an emphasis on peace.
The event was to begin in Nathan Phillips Square at 7:30 and end at the Royal Ontario Museum around 10.
The Stations of the Cross will feature young actors performing a Gospel narrative composed by Father Robert Gendreau.
This Way of the Cross, the priest explained, is to remind young people that "Jesus goes today with us; on the street, he meets us in our daily life."
"This is the reason I conceived the representation of Jesus dressed as he was 2000 years ago," he concluded. "Yet he meets with today's young people, in the same scene. So this meeting appears with Jesus' message that goes across time."
