STATIONS OF THE CROSS

AN INTRODUCTION:

 

Each day this week a new Station of the Cross will be added to the website. You are invited to sit quietly and to use the pictures, the readings, the reflections and prayers to meditate on all that Jesus accomplished through his suffering, crucifixion and death.

 

As you come to each Station pray this prayer before you begin your time of meditation.


We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.

Because by your holy cross you have 

redeemed the world.


As we accompany Jesus on his journey to Calvary, let us take time to remember how difficult that journey was. He carried his cross through the narrow, crowded streets of Jerusalem. It was Passover time and so the city was full of people, many of whom mocked, jostled and took pleasure in watching as Jesus struggled with his heavy burden. The way was often steep. The journey that Jesus made on that day remains a symbol of Christianity in the world, as it struggles with its own crosses and failures, and the challenges of modern life. The streets of our towns are filled with people who carry their personal crosses, who are bruised, battered and broken. Through these Stations of the Cross, Jesus is inviting us to journey with him and to reflect on his suffering as it continues in the lives of his people. In solidarity with all who suffer, let us pray that we will be open to whatever he wants us to see, hear and understand.
