The Stations of the Cross are a series of fourteen scenes that gradually tell the story of how Jesus carried the cross to his death. Sometimes, the devotion is known as the ‘Way of the Cross’ or the ‘Way of Sorrows’. For centuries, Catholics have prayerfully meditated on the Passion of Christ during Lent by contemplating the gospel scenes pictured in the Stations.
This virtual set of Stations features images from various Catholic churches from across the United Kingdom. Each Station includes a biblical text, a short meditation, a penitential prayer and a related story from the Old Testament. The series has been updated for 2023.
You can meditate on all of the stations together, or go at your own pace, perhaps reflecting on one per day during Lent. Meditating on the Way of the Cross is a great way to connect with Christ, prepare for Easter and learn more about Scripture. Discover more
