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.

  • Danielle

    It so strange that I came across this today. I had been wanting to go do the Stations today but unable to. This by far made up for not be able to go. Thank you for a beautiful presentation!!
    Well done!!!!

  • Johnny

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Your “… in 2 minutes” series has been a real blessing, but these stations are an absolute God-send!! Since our Catholic high school is in session on Good Friday morning, we had decided to intersperce a set of Stations throughout the first 3 hours, showing them over our school channel. I didn’t relish trying to put together something of quality to show the kids. But yours are far better than anything I could have done, both in content and in presentation. I should have known that Busted Halo would come through. (O me of little faith!!) God bless you all for this early gift of Easter joy and hope!!

  • Susan

    A graphically moving presentation of the pain and suffering Jesus endured. A way for us to think about how we can better imitate him and serve others.

  • Jamie

    Utterly brilliant! Thank you!
