About the Stations

The Stations of the Cross pictured in this eBook grace the nave of the Abbey Basilica of Mary Help of Christians at Belmont Abbey in Belmont, North Carolina. They were designed and hand-crafted in 1896 by Francis Mayer and Company of Munich, the same company that crafted the Basilica's magnificent painted windows. Down through the decades, countless people have lovingly meditated upon the scenes depicted in these Stations to help them deepen their relationship with Love Himself, Jesus Christ. May these Stations of the Cross and the meditations we have written to accompany them help you do the same.

How to do the Stations of the Cross

This Stations of the Cross is designed for personal use at any time, in any season. Several people with copies of the booklet may recite the stations together, if desired. The only requirement for adequately performing the devotion is a desire to grow closer to Christ Crucified. First, contemplate the image of each station unhurriedly, with a willingness to enter with heart and mind into such a mysterious drama. Second, announce the station (e.g., "The First Station: Jesus is Condemned to Death") and repeat the beginning prayer ("We adore you, O Christ..."), preferably aloud, making the sign of the Cross. Then, read the meditation provided. Again, do not hurry, and make recourse to the image both during and after the meditation. Lastly, when you feel it right to do so, recite the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be in thanksgiving for the saving mystery the station has depicted. Those who cannot recite all the stations in one sitting may say them sequentially over a day, a week, or a season.
