A timeless classic! One of the most beloved devotions for Lent is the Stations of the Cross, and few versions are as popular as the one composed by St. Alphonsus Liguori. This edition includes 14 engravings you can meditate along with the images of each Station even if you are standing still in a pew, at home, or traveling. Also includes the verses of the Stabat Mater that are often sung between each station.
A great addition to your Lenten practices, this book contains devotions especially for the night of Holy Thursday and throughout Good Friday, from the Agony in the Garden to the death and interment of Christ. A great booklet to take with you to your Good Friday meditations in church, and equally useful for home devotional use to concentrate your focus on the Passion from 12:00 to 3:00 PM.
