You have probably prayed the Stations of the Cross many times, and even if you haven’t prayed them, you have probably heard of them. Praying the Stations of the Cross, prayerfully accompanying Christ on his way to Calvary, is an ancient devotion - especially popular during Lent - meant to help us grow in our friendship with the Lord. Why not do something similar during Advent?
In Advent we pay special attention to three comings of Christ: his first coming in Bethlehem, his final coming at the end of history, and his coming here and now in our hearts through the Church’s liturgical celebrations. Christ’s comings are the fulfillment of God’s promise to redeem the fallen human family. The redemption culminated in Christ’s resurrection from the dead, which happened on the first day of the week, also referred to by theological tradition as the “eighth day” - the day after the Sabbath, which was the seventh day of the ancient Jewish week. With that in mind, we have produced this little booklet with the Eight Stations of Advent. The introduction explains the elements of each Station and how to use them. We sincerely hope that this little devotion will help you live this Advent and Christmas more deeply, peacefully, and meaningfully than ever before.
This event is free and open to all. ou may RSVP to let us know you plan to attend by emailing email@example.com.
