See and meditate on Christ’s love for you! This version of the Stations of the Cross connects our own lives to the sacrifice Jesus made for us.
The video contains works of art created by people around the world. Each one is a different style to represent the globalness and diversity of the Church while honoring Christ through the talents of God’s people. The prayers were written by Terry Modica of Good News Ministries (gnm.org) and can be found at http://wordbytes.org/prayers/stations/. The stories of the artists and what they experienced as they produced their part of the Stations of the Cross can be found at http://gnm.org/about/StationsProject/.
My Lord Jesus Christ:
You suffered a great deal for me. I cannot even fathom just how much You accomplished for me through Your sacrifice. What I do know for certain is that I am suffering. I have trials I want to get rid of. But You have shown by your journey to the Cross and your death that I should embrace my sufferings as a journey that will lead to glory. Please help me unite my sufferings with Your Way of the Cross, so that I may be healed, purified and strengthened, and so that I may become Your instrument of healing love for others.
