Today we are going to talk about the Stations of the Cross. Many parishes have the Stations of the Cross devotion on Fridays during Lent. It is a very good idea to take your children there to pray with the rest of the parish if you can. We sometimes do that, but we also pray the Stations of the Cross at home--and not just on Fridays during Lent.
2nd SUNDAY IN LENT QUIZ
The Stations of the Cross is a great devotion for children because they can really understand what is happening and see the series of events right there in the Church, or in the devotional book, and then every time they go to church it is wonderful that they will really understand what each of those pictures around the church means.
Today we have included the introduction from our Holy Heroes Stations of the Cross CD. We will add the audio for each station in succession on each daily email from now on, so that young children can let each station really sink in without being overwhelmed by all of them at once (just like we offer just a "decade-a-day" of the rosary).
NOTE: Last Friday, we had so many things going on that we could not make it to Stations at our parish. So, we used our Stations of the Cross prayer booklet to do it at home. We passed the booklet around so that each station was led by a different person. I must admit: as they read those familiar words, I heard in my mind our audio CD of Virginia leading the prayers! Brought back memories of doing that recording session so many years ago...
