Social Distance and Virtual Stations of the Cross
During the season of Lent we take a journey with Jesus. We start in the wilderness where he overcame the temptation. Then we walk with him on the way to the cross. One of the ways we can do this is by observing an ancient practice where we meaningfully connect with Jesus in the last moments of his life by walking the Stations of the Cross.
This practice started with St. Francis of Assisi and has continued to our day. Walking through the stations of the cross is a devotional exercise. We experience his love afresh as we consider what he went through on our behalf, and we not only meditate on what it means to carry our crosses, but use this time to engage in habits that help us live sacrificial cross-shaped lives. For Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it (Luke 9:23-24 NIV).
