Pray The Stations of the Cross

The palm branch crosses are an excellent reminder of the speed we move from the celebration of the palms to the lament over the passion. Holy week is a time to remember how Christ suffered and died for us. We are pilgrims on a journey retracing Jesus’ steps from the table to the tomb.

There are fourteen prayer stations, click on the first image in the gallery to get the larger view, and click through each one.
