Stations of the Cross

      The Stations of the Cross are a series of prayers that encourage the faithful to think about the sacrifice that Jesus Christ has made for us by dying on the cross. Each Friday during Lent you can participate in Stations of the Cross which will be held at St. Anthony, Mount Shasta at 6 pm and at St. Joseph's, McCloud at 3 pm every Friday during the Lenten season.

Why do Catholics Do That?

      A special Lenten devotion to help us remember what Jesus did for us and to show him we are thankful is THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS. This ritual began when people were going to Jerusalem and walking the same street where Jesus carried his cross. There are fourteen traditional stations:
1. Pilate condemns Christ to death;
2. Jesus carries the cross;
3. the first fall
4. Jesus meets his Blessed Mother;
5. Simon of Cyrene helps to carry the cross;
6. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus;
7. the second fall;
8. Jesus speaks to the women of Jerusalem;
9. the third fall;
10. Jesus is stripped of His garments;
11. Jesus is nailed to the cross;
12. Jesus dies on the cross;
13.Jesus is taken down from the cross;
14. and Jesus is laid in the tomb.
      When we walk with Jesus on His way to the Cross, remember that love and life are more powerful than sin and death, and when we stop with Jesus fourteen times, we think and pray about what His suffering meant for Him and also what it means for us.
