Praying the Stations
The devotion of
the Stations of the Cross can be prayed alone or as a group. In order to
pray the Stations of the Cross, the individual or group move from one
station to station meditating and reciting prayers on the events
depicted which relate to Christ's Passion, from the first station where
he is condemned to death through to the burial of Jesus in the tomb.
It is customary for
the congregation to sing verses of the medieval hymn Stabat Mater ("By
the Cross her Station Keeping") between each station. There are
several traditional catholic prayers that are prayed at each station, we
have included a list of prayers and a selection of videos for an
interactive way of leaning the stations or a useful teaching resource,
ideally for teaching children the stations of the cross.
We hope that you
gain spiritual inspiration from the information
provided on praying this beautiful catholic
devotion. A free
Christian resource for information on the stations
of the cross.

They are an ideal resource for teaching your own children or to use as

individual stations and their significance.
