The Stations of the Cross are a beloved prayer, a way for us to meditate on the mystery of God’s love for us in Jesus. In praying the Stations we journey with Jesus, we look at him, love him, and he looks at us and loves us.
I wrote this set of Stations based on the different cognitive distortions that cause us such mental and emotional turmoil. I find that praying myself into the life and death of Jesus is a powerful way to reframe, renew, and transform the weaknesses of my mind and heart. Somehow whenever I pray these Stations I finish clearer, more open to God’s love, more a channel of God’s love in what had been before an impossible situation. May it do the same for you.
These are based on the Stations of the Cross included in my book Surviving Depression: A Catholic Approach.
