The Stations of the Cross are a long-standing tradition among Christians. The style and form of the stations vary widely and often reflect the artistic sensibility and spirituality of the time, place, and culture of their placement. In other words, people sometimes don’t use all 14 stations, but pull from those to create a sacred place and time of slow, present-minded prayer and contemplation. This is what we have done. From the 14 original stations, we have selected 10 films that we believe embody 10 stations. We hope these will be a blessing to your journey, and open up his Way of the Heart.
These devotions and meditations can be done anytime, but they are commonly used as a Lenten practice on Fridays and especially on Good Friday. Participating in the Way of the Heart is an invitation to be in communion with Jesus, to enter into the mystery of his pain and suffering, and ultimately the most extreme display of sacrificial love in obedience to God. To a much lesser degree, this is a day to day choice we face in our lives. Can we surrender our way and can we take up God’s way? Throughout the Way of the Heart you will find that it is only through the experience of his death on Good Friday that we come alive with him on Easter Sunday.
The series includes 10 film stations with accompanying reflections, meditations and blessings guide.
