Stations of the Cross for Children

Walking with Jesus to Calvary: Stations of the Cross for Children

by Angela M. Burrin
illustrated by Maria Cristina Lo Cascio
Word Among Us Press, 2014

There are many different versions of Stations of the Cross for Children, so what makes this new offering by Angela M. Burrin worth getting? It offers some background information on how the Stations of the Cross began. It also has a “How to Pray the Stations of the Cross” section and suggestions for prayer intentions when praying the Stations.

The reflections themselves are each about four paragraphs long and truly bring the reader into the scene of that station. This process is helped by the poignant illustrations by Maria Cristina Lo Cascio. Each station also ends with a prayer.

This book has a stated age range of 5 – 10, but those older will find it meaningful as well. This is a wonderful aid for Lenten prayer.
