Yoga Stations of the Cross?

When you think you’ve seen it all


Remember the post about the people in Albany who do the Stations of the Cross in clown gear?

When you think you have seen it all… a reader comes around with this sort of thing (edited). This is from St. Louis and the Washington University Catholic Student Center.

To be fair, it is juxtaposed with a lecture by Peter Kreeft and an ad for confessions.
A student sent me this text. I found the advert on the website of the Student Center.
Yoga Stations of the Cross Tonight!

Well, as usual, Fr Z reacts with a narrow mind which is lacking in facts.

The Clown Stations which he criticised at his web site, isn't what people think, being performed in Church by clowns.

Its more of a play done on stage by a Clown Ministry Team.


From The Deacons Bench;

While clowns are seen as symbols of humor, the Clown Ministry Associates take a page from Emmett Kelly. “It isn’t essentially a humorous thing,” said Rita Ablett, a founding member of the group. “It isn’t about clowns — it’s about people.”

The only humor in the clowns’ performance is at the beginning, when two happy clowns try to cheer up Marmeldook, and in some of the sad clown’s questions to the spirit. At one Station, for example, the spirit explains that Jesus told the women of Jerusalem, “Do not weep for me, but for yourselves and for your children.

“The Way of the Cross in the Company of Clowns” | The Deacon's Bench
So, doing Yoga Stations of the Cross, probably means something other than what Fr Z thinks, which isn't surprising.

Some people pray the Rosary while doing Yoga exercise. Rosary Yoga?

Doing Yoga while meditating of the Stations of the Cross would be no different and not only not wrong, but very good.

Its bringing Christian spirituality into the exercise.

BTW, the Clown Stations are explained here;

Clowns' Stations touching audiences
The thing was started by professional clowns, going back to 1987.

Oh yes, the venerable tradition from the '80s of making the Blessed Virgin look like a clown.



What wrong with actually carrying things out with dignity and solemnity? Ugh. And if the intent is to do it solemnly, why the clowns?

And what's wrong with praying like a Catholic rathering than incoporating the latest physical exercise fad at best, new age practice at worst.

Do people really dislike their Catholic heritage that much?

Ok, I'm sorry but that is just gross imo.

So then from your statements, you oppose stations of the cross done in abstract art?

BTW, the purpose of the clown is to express feelings, and is closer to a mime.

Its the expression of Mary in an art form, which isn't disrespectful from what I saw.

The Stations stand on their own. No need for clown makeup. Which imo, is far from art.

The purpose is to express the feelings of the characters portrayed.

Its not an photo imagery of the actual persons, for we don't know what they looked like anyway.

To me, the expression in the face of the Blessed Mother meeting Jesus carrying the cross shown in the photo, is touching.

Your thinking circus clowns, which this was not.

I see no reason for it. So I'm afraid your defense of it is just a waste of time with me.

Different strokes...
