Stations of the Cross for Good Friday


Especially if you're not able to get to church today, you might want to pray the Stations of the Cross at home. You might find the video presentations below especially helpful.

The Stations of the Cross is an ancient devotion in the Catholic Church. Here's a brief history of the Stations which includes a comparison of the customary 14 stations (those found on the walls of most churches and chapels) and a newer version which came to us from John Paul II and was used for the first time in Rome on Good Friday 1991.

Here are links to several offerings of the Stations of the Cross, in a variety of styles:

From the Passionist Fathers

From Beliefnet

From the Order of St. Benedict

The video below offers another opportunity to pray the Stations of the Cross at home, online. It's only 6 minutes long but of course one could pause the video at each station and pray for a longer time.



And here's a fine reflection on the Seven Last Words by William Storey.
