Glory of Calvary

Babu Shahbaz Anjam During the Lenten Season different programs were held at St. Luke’s Parish Shadhra Lahore, under the guidance of the Rev Fr Atif Anthony OP, Parish Priest. To contemplate on the suffering and glorious passion of Jesus a special evening “Calvary’s Glory” was organized at main Parish Church on 10th of April 2019. The program started at 5 PM with the opening prayer of Catechist George Inayat. Christian community from different sub-stations came to the central church of the parish. Many singers were invited from different places; they sung melodies related to the passions of Christ. Poets of the parish also expressed their poetry and helped the people to have a deep reflection on the passion of Christ. After the hymns they silently reflected and prayed for their different intensions. Rev. Fr. Atif OP addressing the congregation said, “We must in our prayers learn to meditate upon the passion of our Lord with great devotion. Perhaps it is easier to look at the Resurrection and his Triumphal victory of death than passion of Christ.” In the end, he thanked the entire congregation and invited them to share the meal.
