Walking in the Footsteps of the Lord is our response to God’s love for us and is intended to be a forty-step journey; not a race. The Scripture passages will guide your prayer and dispose you to listen to the voice of God. Just as Mary “pondered all things in her heart,” you may wish to reflect upon a passage for more than a day. Let the Holy Spirit guide you through the readings–slowly and prayerfully.
“The way that God is seen in this world is by following Christ; seeing is going, is being on the way for our whole life toward the living God, whereby Jesus Christ, by the entire way that he walked, especially by the Paschal Mystery of his suffering, death, Resurrection, and Ascension, presents us with the itinerary.” – Pope Benedict XVI
