The Stations of the Cross
The practice of The Stations of the Cross is an ancient tradition in the church.It is usually characterized by prayer and meditation before artist renditions of the journey of Jesus on the day of His crucifixion.It is a time to contemplate His suffering and the purpose of it.Jesus went to the cross to open the door to Heaven for us.He endured humiliation and pain so we could have live with God eternally, but also, that we could have access to God even now in this broken world.
Contemplating the Stations is not a religious act of duty, but a time of sitting with our friend Jesus and remembering his love for us and how he showed his love in action. 1 Jn 3:18 in the Bible says “let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and truth.”When we take time to put our minds on how Jesus loves us with perfect sacrificial love, we learn how to be love those around us.
The Stations of the Cross is a meditative journey along the “Via Dolorosa,” the way of suffering.We will take time on our mats to meditate, pray and focus on the Biblical account of Jesus’ journey to the cross.This will be a time we use our body, mind and soul to focus on Jesus precious sacrifice for us. We will take some time to contemplate the Stations of the Cross and Scripture while incorporating yoga as we let truth of God’s Word sink in deeply.
