We would like to thank each one of you for attending this year's Way of the Cross through Downtown Chicago. Thank you for your presence and your participation in this gesture which we offer to the entire city.
We would like to thank Cardinal George for supporting and participating in this event; Fr. Luca Brancolini, Fr. Pat Marshall, and Fr. Elias O'Brien for their participation and to Msgr. Daniel G. Mayall, who, with the staff at Holy Name Cathedral, arranged for us to end at the Cathedral.
We thank the Chicago Police Department for their attentive escort; the choir of Communion and Liberation, and those who were helping as ushers.
We hope to see you again next year, on April 18, 2014
. Blessings for the rest of the Triduum and a Happy Easter to all!

Each year we follow the passion of Christ in the heart of our city, where thousands of people carry their cross every day. Through choral music, Gospel passages, reflections, and our silent procession, we hope to enter more deeply into the events of Good Friday and their meaning for us today. We ask to experience the exceptional Presence of Christ among us as a real answer to the needs of our hearts.
As we process through downtown Chicago on Good Friday, we join with the entire Church, the Church throughout the world and the Church throughout the ages, in remembering what Christ's suffering and death mean - not remembering what it meant - but remembering what it means for us here and now and means for all people in every place and time.
We invite you to join us in this simple expression of our love for Christ and His love for us in the morning
