Although the Stations of the Cross unfold for us a story of passion and pain, they also have a potent message of hope and transformation that connect with people in many ways. In the story that the Stations unfold, all sources of evil are connected: jealousy, betrayal, cowardice, injustice, cruelty and weakness. It is here that Jesus takes everything on himself and assumes all human suffering.
The Stations of the Cross is a prayer in motion. They spell out for us that suffering and death do not have the last word because God cares for all creation.
