Jesus Twitters From The Cross

by | 11th, April 2009

IT’S Easter and your chance to experience the Stations of the Cross as Jesus travels through New York relaying his trip via cell phone, Blackberry, iPhone.

This year, you can travel the Stations of the Cross online and be part of a worldwide audience – via cell phone, Blackberry, iPhone, or other Internet connection – for what may be the world’s first Passion Play performed through the social networking application Twitter.

Stations of the Cross

A contemporary recreation of Christ’s Passion, the online Stations allow you to meditate on Christ’s final hours at your own pace. Experience the Stations in a modern dramatic recreation including photos, scriptural passages and prayers, and meditative music.

Users will find a main image that consist of a cross made up of 14 squares, taken from black and white photos of a recent staging of the Stations in Lower Manhattan. When clicked, each square will open to reveal one station of the cross.

And now a question: “What Would Jesus Tweet?”

In addition, Trinity will put on a unique Passion Play that marries this timeless Christian tradition with the latest in social networking trends.

The play begins on Good Friday, April 10, at 12 noon.

Lasting 3 hours, you can become an audience member by following twspassionplay on twitter and enabling direct messages. Have the feed delivered to your cell phone, blackberry, or email address.

You will receive Tweets from the main characters as the events of Christ’s passion unfold. Experience the passion wherever you are in your day, and feel free to forward it on to friends.
