Accompany Jesus on the Via Dolorosa with our Carmelite Stations of the Cross booklet. The Stations of the Cross (Via Crucis) is a series of images depicting the Passion of Jesus Christ from his condemnation until he is laid in the tomb. The Stations grew out of imitations of the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. Prayers are said at each of the fourteen Stations to facilitate a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.
Our booklet features images of the Stations of the Cross in our chapel at the Carmelite Monastery, Quidenham. For each Station there is a scripture text and meditations by Carmelite saints and our Sisters. Between each of the first ten Stations are verses from poems by Blessed Titus Brandsma, a Dutch Carmelite priest who died in Dachau, and between the last four stations are verses from poems by St John of the Cross. A fifteenth Station of the Resurrection is also included as an invitation to enter more deeply into the risen life of Jesus.
The A5 size booklet is printed on high quality gloss paper, with colour images throughout.
