Stations of the Cross

Here are some recordings of the stations of the cross for your Lenten growth:

Rosary Army's Podcast Extra: Stations of the Cross

The stations of the cross based on those celebrated by Pope John Paul II on Good Friday 1991, prayed by Greg and Jennifer Willits, founders of Rosary Army. Visit for more from Rosary Army.

Here’s how J.S. Bach in his St. Matthew Passion renders the moment on the Cross where Christ says, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” to the following words: [Listen to the mp3 segment here, set to the following words:]

Be near me, Lord, when dying
O part not you from me!
And to my succor flying,
Come, Lord, and set me free!
And when my heart must languish
In death’s last awful throe,
Release me from my anguish,
By your own pain and woe.

Here’s the same moment as Bach renders it in his St. John Passion.
