An ancient practice strengthens our awareness of God’s healing presence.
“Suffering, sorrow, injustice, confusion, and death can touch any of us, at any time . . . the Stations can offer consolation and comfort when we are grieving; healing and restoration when we are parched; inspiration and guidance when we are searching or lost or simply beset by the turmoil and temptation, isolation and insecurity that unsettle all our lives.” —From the introduction
Praying the Stations of the Cross offers a life-transforming spiritual practice. Grounded in Scripture, the Stations remind readers of the overarching power of God’s love for all people and our steadfast hope for redemption, a sure and true comfort in the face of pain and sorrow.
Artist Margaret Adams Parker and theologian Katherine Sonderegger make the Stations of the Cross accessible for those new to the practice and offer compelling insight to those with long familiarity. Equally useful for individuals, groups, and congregations, Praying the Stations of the Cross can be used as an ongoing spiritual practice, a service offered in times of sorrow, struggle, or conflict, or a Lenten devotion.
