For nearly 2000 years, the shrines in and around Jerusalem have drawn pilgrims inspired by the life and death of our Lord. Not everyone, however, is able to travel to the Holy Land. As a result, ever since the Middle Ages, churches began erecting images devoted to various aspects of the passion. By the 15th century, the Franciscans developed a devotion called ‘Stations.’ It took a while to fix the number and the names of the stations, but in 1731 Pope Clement XII established the 14 we know today. This hallowed tradition reminds us of the outpouring of Christ’s love as He accepted death on the cross. In keeping with this tradition, throughout Lent Stations of the Cross will be prayed on Fridays at 6:30 p.m. in Our Lady, Queen of Peace Church (in 2025 the Stations will be prayed in Saint James Church). Everyone is invited to join us for this time of prayer.
