A Short Stations of the Cross
In the Christian West few devotional practices are as loved as the Way of the Cross,
a devotion which recalls the last stage of the journey that Jesus walked in his earthly life:
from when he and his disciples, ‘after psalms had been sung, left for the Mount of Olives’ (Mk 14, 26),
‘until the Lord was taken to the place called Golgotha, the Skull’ (Mk 15, 22),
to be crucified
and then buried in a garden nearby,
in a new tomb hewn out of the rock.
a recording of: We praise you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
Let us pray
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we live in a land far away from Jerusalem,
nevertheless, today we walk with your Son, Jesus, on his Way of the Cross
to have some share in his generous self-giving,
so that we may live life more fully,
and finally share in his resurrection.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
