The Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ's last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete. There are many, many wonderful readings, audios, and videos of the stations of the cross. The below is just a few of the many - perhaps one of these will become your favorite for this Lenten season.

Beautiful visuals and instrumental music accompany this recitation of the stations with prayer. The reflections are well geared for children and adults with today’s struggles. Easy to follow along (unfortunately as this is a YouTube video it does include “commercials” you can bypass one at a time).

This is a nice series of the stations of the cross visuals appropriate for children viewing as well. These are only visuals to mediate on or perhaps discuss with family and children.
