Stations of the Cross

This beautiful, ancient prayer commemorates successive incidents on Jesus' journey from condemnation by Pilate to his crucifixion and burial. Stations of the Cross is most commonly prayed during Lent, particularly on Fridays especially Good Friday, but can be prayed at any time.

Through the series of fourteen artistic representations we recall Jesus suffering and death... and his great love for us.

There are many versions of the Stations available. Here are a few:
