The way of the cross is a particularly moving event for children. Children's Way of the Cross leads children through this prayer, the heart of the message of the Good News of Jesus. The prayers and meditations offered in this booklet have been specially written to help children enter into the mystery of Christ's suffering, death and resurrection.
Each station opens with a suggestion of prayer for persons in today's world who are immersed in the sufferings of Christ. Adapting St. Ignatius' approach to meditation, the format allows children to use their gift of imagination to re-create the scene suggested in each station, and to place themselves there. A Scripture reading suggests the way thsi station applies to everyday life. A Scriptural response follows.
