Stations of the Cross
Using clips from Mel Gibson’s film, the Passion of the Christ, music from a variety of sources – but mainly from Handel’s Messiah – and reflections written from the perspective of the Centurion we are invited to set aside some time to prayerfully contemplate Jesus’ journey from Pilate’s court to the Cross.
The term Station comes from the Latin meaning to stop and stare. The devotions invite us to stop, stare, pray and reflect. They are mainly taken from the Gospels but are supplemented with pious legend – the Gospel’s don’t record Jesus meeting His Mother, Veronica wiping His face nor the number of times he fell. They are a powerful devotion, especially for Holy Week. We hope you find them useful.
