Stations of the Cross for Kids E-book

Jesus died in Jerusalem.
Jesus walked from the court yard to Calvary Hill carrying His cross.
Calvary is where He was crucified.
The path he used is called Via Dolorosa, "the way of pain."

Since His death, people began to make visits to Jerusalem and walk in Jesus' footsteps.
The people would walk on that same path, Via Dolorosa that Jesus used.
They would stop along the way and would remember what happened to Jesus at the exact spot where they are standing.

Remember, Jesus was carrying His cross and the different things that happened to Him along the Via Dolorosa are called stations.
That's how we got the name Stations of the Cross
 


Now let's begin walking with Jesus along theVia Dolorosa in

Before each Station, genuflect and say,

"We adore You , Jesus  because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world."
