Good Friday - Stations of the Cross

There is a great page at the Holy See's website which makes available the Stations of the Cross used by the Holy Father for his annual celebration at the Coliseum in Rome. The Stations are written by a variety of people over the years. They are available in English back as far as 2000. Before that you'd better know Italian. Also, there are pictures accompanying the stations from a variety of sources. The picture at left is from the 12th Station in 2008 which meditations were written by the Archbishop of Hong Kong. Note: the stations are not always the traditional 14 that we are used to. There are always 14, but sometimes they take up other moments from scripture in the Passion of our Lord.
This is one of those resources which really makes for some good prayer over Good Friday and even into Holy Saturday Morning. Enjoy!
