The texts and illustrations of the Way of the Cross presented by REPAM are beyond words.
They seek to identify the Passion of Our Divine Redeemer, by which He redeemed all men from the original sin committed by our first Parents, with pagan customs of aboriginal peoples and the environment.
This Way of the Cross confuses the creation with the Creator and badly smacks of pantheism, in which everything is god. Furthermore, it presents Our Lord Jesus Christ merely as a “valiant” man who opposed the powerful of his time.
Those who pray this Way of the Cross will end up contaminated by a vision of a non-transcendent, material god ‘incarnated’ only in peoples that have not received the message of the Gospel. They will also remain untouched by civilizing progress.
In short, they are being called to give up civilization and return to a tribal state.
What does this have to do with the One who said “Without Me you can do nothing”?
Way of the Cross by REPAM (excerpts)
Today in the Amazon region and amidst the diversity of its peoples, the liberating project of the incarnation of Jesus is present more than ever in women and men who give themselves out of love to the point of giving up their lives.
Knowing that the cross is a possible consequence of loving life and justice but that it will never be the end, but the way to a new life.
Second Station - Jesus Carries the Cross
Tenth Station - Jesus Is Stripped of His Garments
Eleventh Station - Jesus Is Nailed to the Cross
Twelfth Station - Jesus Dies on the Cross
“Fifteenth station - Resurrection of Jesus”
Feel the cry of the children of the Earth, who fight every day for better days for all humanity.
Recognize the hope of resurrection in the strength, resistance and paths of liberation that the Amazon proposes to the world.
Live new paths for the Church in Integral Ecology, a living and possible bet to which we are all called to convert.
Choose, act, transform the NEW WORLD that announces to us the courage of Jesus.
