A few years ago, I attended Stations of the Cross every Friday during Lent. But lately every church we go to, the Lenten Stations are getting hard to participate in.

One couple in the parish commented that they used to attend the Stations at a particular church until the pastor turned each station into a political statement.

Keep searching! There are parishes (usually small ones) that offer reverent meditations. In the meantime, print this one out and use it at home. The book we are following has beautiful graphics for each station that I could not reproduce for obvious reasons.

The holy priests are out there - you just have to look harder. My lenten prayers are with you and your family.

That's what happened at my old parish.

Each Station has a duel image painted on it. One, of the actual Station, and another image almost superimposed on it, representing some "political justice" message.
