And so, eventually the Stations of the Cross became a popular devotion. The faithful could walk from one scene of Christ’s last journey to the other, reflecting and praying abou tit as they did. There is no one “official” set of prayers for the stations, all that is required is faithful reflection on the steps that Jesus took to save us from our sins.
Stations of the Cross are celebrated here at Our Lady of the Woods on Fridays during Lent. Watch the bulletin and this page for the the schedule. One may pray the Stations of the Cross at any time by following the depictions of the stations on the walls in the church.
On Good Friday in 1991, Pope John Paul II prayed an ecumenical version of the Stations based on Scripture. This Scriptural version of the Stations is an alternative to the traditional Stations.
