Thursday, 26 March 2020 – Why Should We Pray the Stations of the Cross?

Praying the Stations of the Cross is a Lenten practice linked to the early Christian pilgrims who walked the way of the cross starting at Pilate’s house to Calvary. Praying the Stations is a devotion in which we can meditate on the Crucifixion of Jesus.

The crucifixion was the most horrible crime perpetrated on humanity, and yet it represents the defeat of sin. God always subverts the worst things imaginable and uses them as the source of tremendous good.

In this time of uncertainty and turmoil, many are carrying their own crosses. Let us look to the cross of Jesus as the emblem—not of capital punishment and horrific suffering (although it represents those things), but as the source of tremendous good since it points to our salvation.

Please join the Dominican Friars in praying this wonderful and meaningful Lenten practice (video below).

Oremus pro invicem—let us pray for one another!
