A Bomana Prison inmate says the Holy Cross of Jesus Christ, is triumphant and must be the focus of our Christian faith.

Sam Tom was a convicted prisoner who converted, and now a preacher, proclaims God’s Word in prison.


He made these comments at the Way of the Holy Cross here in Port Moresby today.


The Way of the Cross was led by the Saint Joseph’s Catholic Youth, with the assistance of the Saint Martin’s Anglican Church, began at Boroko this morning.


It proceeded to Erima, Gordon’s then to Waigani.


Thousands followed the Cross, among them Bomana Prison inmates. They prayed, meditated and sang songs, honouring the Cross triumphant.


It was passed on from one station to another by parish youths, and continued its journey through Tokarara and Hohola.


Its final destination was Murray Barracks, the next host.


Prison inmate Tom says the Holy Cross is the symbol of Christ suffering and resurrection and God’s reunion with humanity.


But for Rosemary Miria, the partnership of youths from Catholic, Anglican is ecumenical, including other Christian denominations.


She spoke on the challenges of faith.


Today is Good Friday.  As a tradition of the Catholic Church, New Guineas including, brother denominations have joined the rest of the world, to walk with Jesus on the way of the Cross.


The traditions follow Christi suffering and footsteps to Mount Calvary where he was crucified because of our own sins, bringing to us the greatest gift of all; the Pascal mystery – his resurrection.
