The Stations of the Cross have been a popular prayer form going back to the Middle Ages. The winter/spring 2019 Adult Lenten Spirituality course at Resurrection, entitled The Way of the Cross for Modern Times, will explore the stations of the cross as a Lenten reflection on our personal, societal and economic choices.  The course will study how this prayer form can help us address both spiritual and social issues facing the Christian community in our world today. 


Along with the Stations of the Cross, course participants will use Catholic social teaching to help explore the walk with Jesus and experience our lived faith in our world today. A book of meditations on the Stations of the Cross by Pope Francis will be provided to each participant.  Below are the books and resources that will be utilized in the course.
