There has been a long tradition in the Church of meditating on the events of the suffering and death of Jesus, called the Stations of the Cross. In the latter part of the twentieth century a complementary devotion emerged, called the Stations of the Resurrection or the Stations of Joy. This version has been created for personal devotion/ meditation during the season between Easter and Pentecost.

Using the resurrection appearances as a focus for reflection and meditation we have an opportunity to appreciate and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. The resurrection appearances are more than just stories or history, they are a record of personal encounters with our risen Lord. It is hoped that silence and space around these devotions, perhaps reflecting on one ‘station’ each day, may enable that encounter to happen today.

May you be richly blessed.
