An ancient, spiritual practice is the Stations of the Cross. The Way of the Cross, written in many times and ways, is a text that serves as a guide for each practitioner. 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.
Artists from Trinity have created emblems of the stations in a variety of media appealing to our several senses even while acknowledging the many textures of creation. The text in our Way of the Cross is in three parts for each station: Scripture to mark the event; reflective text in the imagined, inner voice of the suffering Christ; and guided prayer. All this becomes Trinity’s practice, the Stations of the Cross, and our way to the Cross.
As you come to each station, you are invited to open your heart in your beholding, your reading, and your praying. We need to know what Christ endured and gave for us. It is good for us to know that we have a part in Christ, and each other, through the salvation of sacrifice. May God keep us all, during the Passion of Christ and always.
