The Way of the Cross is a devotion that helps us to realize the love of God for us, and our responsibility to God that results from His love. So through the story of Christ's suffering and man's salvation, until we come finally to the truth that tries man's credulity, Christ dies on the cross.
In these stations we have not used the traditional titles for each station for we felt that these are both obvious and well known and could be omitted. Rather, we selected texts from the Old Testament. For the stations of the cross are a meditation, and these texts suggest one avenue of thought appropriate to such a meditation.
And as this day of singular evil comes to an end....
"All the world is quiet and still."
