The Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross by Eric Armusik

The Stations of the Cross is an ancient devotion in the Catholic Church.  Most Catholic church buildings feature images of the story of the suffering and death of Jesus, usually found on the walls surrounding the sanctuary. Stations are often prayed by groups of people in Lent on Friday afternoons or evenings.  Here's a brief history of the Stations of the Cross.  And here's a link to a contemporary rendering of the Stations.

You might want to check your parish schedule to see if the Stations of the Cross are being prayed in your church.

This video offers an 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.
