Praying the Stations of the Cross for Seniors
Walking with Jesus on his way to Calvary can take on special meaning for us as we face the pains and changes that come with getting old.
By connecting many aspects of aging to Jesus’ Passion and death, this insightful and poignant Way of the Cross shows us how close Jesus is to us on our journey. It opens our eyes to the new beginnings that this time of life can bring and assures us that Jesus will give us the strength and courage to face our challenges with faith and patience, endurance and compassion, spiritual vigor and true wisdom, cheerfulness and generosity, and optimism and abiding hope.
These thoughtful prayers and reflections, meant to be prayed alone or with others, help us see the grace and beauty of this time of life. Praying these Stations is not just for the elderly—it’s also for anyone who cares for and walks with seniors into this new stage of life and spiritual growth.
