Stations of the Cross

I attended Catholic Grade School. On Good Friday, we always got out of school at Noon.

But, before that, we all participated in a living Stations of the Cross. Each class would have one or two of the stations assigned. A group from each class would perform the stations. Each station would be performed some where around the school or the playground, finishing up at the church six blocks away. Those not participating would go, by class, to each station, until the whole school (all 250 total) was at the church.

It was a beautiful way to remember Christ's walk to His death.

I can still hear children reciting:

Leader: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
All: Because by your holy cross You have redeemed the world.
You can pray the Stations of the Cross here.

I will post some later.
