The Story of Trinity's Way of the Cross

Note:  This is an online presentation of Trinity's Way of the Cross that can be experienced each year at Trinity during Holy Week.  This online presentation is available year-round to supplement your daily devotions at any time.


The Stations of the Cross and the Way of the Cross

An ancient, spiritual practice is the Stations of the Cross.  The Stations of the Cross have been followed by Christians for many centuries.  Lutherans have often kept the Stations of the Cross, as many Lutheran churches keep the Stations now.

As we pass from station to station, we are reminded of the final episodes or events in the life of Christ, once Christ’s last supper with his disciples is done.  In order to have a unique experience for our parish, we have selected our Fourteen Stations.

The Way of the Cross is the text that serves as a guide for each practitioner of the Stations.  The words in our Way of the Cross are in three parts for each station: Scripture to describe the Station; reflective text in the imagined, inner voice of the suffering Christ; and then a guided prayer.  The reflective text emphasizes the human aspect of Jesus–the part that keenly, physically felt every sensation of each event–and the part of Christ that we can relate to most closely.

As a participant–as a pilgrim on the Way of the Cross–you are invited to take time at each Station to behold, to read, to reflect, to think and to feel, and to pray.  No one will hurry you, so please don’t hurry yourself.

Let this, then, become your practice of the Stations of the Cross and the way to the Cross.
