Presenting the traditional devotion in a virtual way to help you reflect on the mystery of Jesus’ death and what it still means to us today

The Stations of the Cross is a devotion following the events leading to Jesus’ crucifixion. Prayers accompanying it allow time to reflect on the mystery of his death. Originally the Stations of the Cross was an actual physical journey in and around Jerusalem. Later the series was symbolized in outdoor shrines, and today many parishes display artistic representations in their sanctuaries. The Stations of the Cross may be done at any time, but is commonly a part of Lenten spiritual practice, specifically on Good Friday.

Busted Halo® has created a series of virtual stations designed for personal devotion. These stations relate to Jesus’ teachings about the Kingdom of God and the reason his vision of this Kingdom led to his death. Find a quiet place to watch these stations, and as you do the devotions be open to how God is speaking to you through the Stations of the Cross.

    I like it. I’d also like to see the Biblical Stations of the Cross in the same type of presentation. Very good.

    I can see the link to download all the videos as one file. If I click on that link and it’ll play all 14 stations but it won’t let me save it. If I right click the link it says to “save target as” and when I do that and play the saved file I just get a red screen about a Blip player. Is that something I need to download?

    This depiction of the Stations of the Cross at the JPII Cultural Center chapel is my favorite and I have fond memories of praying before. They are hung at eye level and you are able to meditate on them “up close and personal”. Thank you for making them available to share with Catholics everywhere.
