Virtual tour

I have always loved visiting our local Catholic Church to walk the "Stations of the Cross" during Holy Week. St. Andrews has always been most welcoming and accommodating of our youth group. Whether we've requested a tour or asked to be allowed time to walk from one station to the other at our own pace. This has become a most treasured part of my Lenten practice...

If you are unable to visit a "real" place or if you'd like something a little different, Busted Halo is offering a virtual tour:

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.
This year, 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.

Enjoy your walk...
