The Stations of the Cross is a very old devotion; it may well originate in the desire of Christians to go on pilgrimage to Jerusalem and be in the place where Jesus went to his death. Like all Catholic churches, we have stations (‘stopping-places’) on the walls of our churches to allow us to pause (‘stop’) and enter reflectively into those last moments of Jesus’s journey of love, and to pray by imagining ourselves in Jerusalem with him.
Click the arrows or the station numbers in the carousel below to move between stations.
At each station, we pray:
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you,
because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
After each station we pray:
I love you, Jesus, my love above all things,
And I repent with my whole heart of having offended you.
Never permit me to separate myself from you again,
Grant that I may love you always, and then do with me what you will.
