Stations of the Cross
The Stations of the Cross are depictions of the final hours of Jesus on the day of his crucifixion. The purpose is to help believers make a spiritual pilgrimage to the important places of Christ’s sufferings and death. Commonly, a series of images are arranged in a numbered order along a path, and people will travel from image to image, stopping to reflect and pray. Meditation upon the stations can be done at any time, but is most common during the season of Lent, especially on Good Friday.
In Matthew 8 and 9, the gospel writer, in one masterful brushstroke after another, paints a rich, multi-layered portrait of Jesus. Through dramatic storytelling, Jesus is King above leprosy, sickness, fever, thunderstorms, demons, paralysis, sin, chronic illness, blindness and even death. Interwoven in and through these stories are little portraits of discipleship.
