When we pray the Stations of the Cross, one of the Church's most familiar and beloved devotions, we witness Jesus' immense suffering and become much closer to him in his Passion. The Challenge of the Cross follows the traditional fourteen stations and includes the fifteenth station on the Resurrection. Each station includes an opening prayer followed by a scriptural reflection that provides a prayerful application to our own lives. Following each reflection is a prayer, a Scripture passage to ponder, and a closing prayer.
