Stations of the Cross for Kids {Book Review}

Stations of the Cross

Written by Regina Doman
Illustrated by Chris Lewis
Tan Books

This book is a wonderful resource to help kids pray the Stations of the Cross. It’s packed with detailed illustrations of each scene, references from Scripture, further explanation of the scene and reflection on what the people were doing and experiencing, a prayer asking for the virtues we learn from the Station as well as the prayer by St. Alphonsus Liguori and excerpts from the 13th century Latin hymn to Our Lady describing her experience as she suffered alongside her Son. Further insight into the Scripture (including foreshadowing prophecy from the Old Testament) and additional detail about the Catholic Devotion of the Stations offer deeper participation and understanding of this journey with Jesus through His Passion.
