STATIONS OF THE CROSS have been prayed for many centuries; through this devotion we are better able to appreciate and understand the suffering that Jesus endured out of love for each one of us.

The First Station: Jesus is condemned to die.

How do I act when I am unfairly accused even though I did nothing wrong?

The Second Station: Jesus takes up his cross.

What can I do when I must shoulder an almost impossible load?

The Third Station: Jesus falls for the first time.

How do I act when I struggle to do what I am expected to do?

The Fourth Station: Jesus meets his mother.

How can I comfort the heartbroken?

The Fifth Station: Simon helps Jesus carry his cross.

Do I willingly help others in need?

The Sixth Station: Veronica wipes the face of Jesus.

What can I do when someone is hurt or is suffering?

The Seventh Station: Jesus falls a second time.

What can I do when someone is tired and needs assistance?

The Eighth Station: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem.

How can I comfort the frightened?

The Ninth Station: Jesus falls the third time.

Who do I turn to when I can barely move forward?

The Tenth Station: Jesus is stripped of his garments.

How can I help to provide the basic necessities for those in need?

The Eleventh Station: Jesus is nailed to the cross.

How can I help someone who is defenseless in the face of cruelty.

The Twelfth Station: Jesus dies on the cross.

What can I do to forgive someone who has hurt me?

The Thirteenth Station: Jesus is taken down from the cross.

What can I do when a friend needs my help?

The Fourteenth Station: Jesus is laid in the tomb.

How can I help someone who is grieving?
