Lent 2020: Stations of the Cross
23 January 2020
Lent is a time when we practise openness to God’s grace, as we prepare to renew our baptismal promises. God helps us during this time to transform our relationships – with our neighbour, with God, and with the Earth.
Pope Francis calls us to “serve Christ present in our brothers and sisters in need”. He says, “I want a Church of the poor, for the poor.” As Lent approaches, please remember to pray for our sisters and brothers living in poverty.
Our Lent Calendar is a beautiful resource to accompany you on your faith journey this Lent. Follow it each day for a reflection and prayer on the reading for the day.
Stations of the Cross Lent 2020
Our Stations of the Cross resource is intended to be a journey of transformation, to be carried out either personally on in a group. You may like to follow this on Fridays during Lent, especially Good Friday.
Use our Stations of the Cross PowerPoint reflection with your parish or community to guide you through the 15 stations. We also have leader's notes available for those who wish to organise a group reflection.
Stories from around the world
In the Calendar and Stations you can follow stories like that of Sister Consilia Munkuli from Zimbabwe, who witnesses patients arriving every day at the small hospital where she works as a pharmacist:
“In our congregation we work with the poorest of the poor. In Mtora Mission Hospital, those who come to the hospital, they come with a need and they want to be helped.”
As you fast, pray and give alms this Lent, please remember in your prayers Sister Consilia's patients and people around the world who find it difficult to access the healthcare they need.
Pray with us
Christ Jesus, you know what it is to feel hungry and alone. Open my eyes to my brothers and sisters who will not eat today, and fill me with compassion, so that I may reach out to them in love.
