What are the Stations of the Cross and why are they important?
Have you ever wondered what the Stations of the Cross are? We all know that it is a prayer that breaks down Jesus’s road to death. But they are so much more than that. Jesus is outside of time, meaning that He is present to us right now, not only in his life and resurrection but in His death. The Stations of the Cross are an opportunity to reflect on one basic fact. We are the crowd who shouts “crucify Him” and calls for his unjust death, yet, Jesus saves our souls because He loves each one of us.
Take a moment to think about how great that love is, a man that died for a world that did not love Him back. Click the video below to take that walk with Jesus to Calvary.
