The Stations or The Way of the Cross


"My dear Child: By the Stations we mean the sorrowful journey that Jesus made with the cross when He was on the way to the hill of Calvary to be crucified. You should love to make the Stations and you should do so often, especially during Lent. It is an easy way to show the good Jesus that you are thankful to Him for having suffered so much for you. It will please Him very much if you thus show your pity for Him and your love for Him..."  ~  Jesus, Make Me Worthy



 

We adore Thee, O Lord, Jesus Christ, and bless Thy Holy Name. 
Because by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Jesus, Make Me Worthy


+The younger children took turns blowing out the candles after we prayed each Station+

    1. Thank you, Krista! We have a few different versions we use here at home. The one pictured here, that we used last night, was from Jesus, Make Me Worthy. Our older children all received copies of this sweet prayer book for their First Holy Communions. Our nine year old has his in a cover from Catholic Embroidery (no longer in business) but covers can be ordered from MissalCovers.com too. We don't have any of their covers yet, but I'm ordering one for one of our Godson's upcoming First Holy Communions and am also hoping to include a few in Easter baskets this year as well.

    1. After the girls made some similar Marian Grottos recently, I'm now surprised that all 14 of these stand up on their own so nicely! They have a thick base and we somehow managed to keep the popsicle sticks even when we were making them. One of our other grottos needs to be leaned up against something, or we will need to add a hook to the back and hang it up.
