Scriptural Stations of the Cross

, , / 28th February, 2017

The following text for a Scriptural Stations of the Cross is adapted from the stations found on the website of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. These stations are based on those celebrated by Pope John Paul II on Good Friday 1991. They are presented here as an alternative to the traditional stations and as a way of reflecting more deeply on the Scriptural accounts of Christ’s passion. One or more readers may read the Scriptural reflections. A period of silence should be observed between the Scripture reading and the prayer. A crossbearer accompanied by two candlebearers may stand in front of each station as it is announced. As the cross and candlebearers move between the stations, all may sing the verse of an appropriate antiphon.
