The Way of the Cross, a meditation for Holy Week

The Way of the Cross, a meditation for Holy Week

The Rt. Rev. Andrew M. L.Dietsche, XVI Bishop of New York, presents the Revd Br Tobias Stanislas Haller, BSG with The Bishop’s Cross in NOV 2014.

The Revd Br Tobias Stanislas Haller, BSG is a treasure to the Episcopal Church and to LGBTQ Christians. He is an author, a theologian, a monastic, a poet, an actor, a musician, an iconographer and someone whom I have grown to respect who has the ability to explain something succinctly and with profound intellect. I have loved so many of the icons that he has written. I’m sure that it is a rest well deserved when he took retirement last year, but I’m also as sure that he is deeply missed by the Diocese of New York and his parish, St James Episcopal, Fordham in the Bronx.

In 2015 he created a meditation video Meditationes Viam Crucis (Meditations on the Way of the Cross). The video is a set of Stations of the Cross that Tobias created for his parish in 2014. The music for meditating is a Symphonic poem that Tobias wrote in 1982. The music is based on traditional music of the Passion and ends with a chorale that “looks beyond the Way of the Cross towards Easter.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
