Over two thousand turned up very early this morning for the Via Crucis which started at 3:00 am, went around the parish. Estimated distance: 10 kilometers. That's longer than the original route that Jesus followed in Jerusalem! I couldn't wake up on time so I had to catch up with the crowd by jogging. I hadn't eaten for five days so I just jogged very slowly. I am just amazed by the size of the crowd and the composition - men, women, young and old, and even children. Nobody fainted. We finished by 7:30 am.
