The Via Delarosa
The Via Delarosa or way of suffering is a path that winds through the Jerusalem’s Old City. This tradition that finds its roots in the medieval time period was an ancient pilgrimage destination. Along the way there are fourteen stops that commemorate events, both scriptural and ones that only tradition remembers, that happened on the way to the cross.
Even though we are thousands of miles from Jerusalem, you are invited to explore those stations. At each one you will find a description, a reflection, and guidance on what to pray for. There will also be pictures that show what the actual station looks like in Jerusalem.
Please take as much time as you need and it is our sincere hope that this exercise in prayer draws you closer to God this week.
