Stations of the Cross Replaced...with MDGs

The Episcopal Church’s charitable arm, Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) has released a liturgy to encourage American Anglicans to focus their Lenten devotions upon the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The liturgy “Stations of the MDGs” is “designed to be used during Lent in lieu of the traditional Stations of the Cross service."
So instead of meditating on the heart of the crucified Christ thrust through with a lance, we can think of ways to "create a global partnership for development"--whatever that means.
