The Stations of the Cross
The "Stations of the Cross" sometimes referred to as "Way of the Cross" is a devotion commerating the final hours of our Lords Life.
The intention is to mediate before each station and pray on each scene depicted. Each station is a stage in the passion of our Lord, from Jesus being condemed to death through to when He is laid in the tomb.
In order to follow the spiritual pilgrimage of the Stations of the Cross, it is helpful to prepare yourself. So make sure you have 30 minutes of quiet time. Pray alone or in a group, do not rush and take time to mediate on the suffering which Our Lord suffered for our salvation.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
My Lord, Jesus Christ,
You have made this journey to die for me with unspeakable love;
and I have so many times ungratefully abandoned You.
But now I love You with all my heart;
and, because I love You, I am sincerely sorry for ever having offended You.
Pardon me, my God, and permit me to accompany You on this journey.
You go to die for love of me;
I want, my beloved Redeemer, to die for love of You.
My Jesus, I will live and die always united to You.
