Timothy Cardinal Dolan pointed out that the holiest of days has always been a time of turmoil. “Think of that first Easter,” he said, “There were three soldiers guarding the tomb. Good Friday and Easter Sunday have always been a little risky.” And Good Friday is commemorated in a special way as thousands fill the streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn to participate with Bishop DiMarzio in the Way of the Cross. Our Michelle Powers is there.
