Join the friars in praying the 14 Stations of the Cross
Follow Jesus’ footsteps through Jerusalem
Great for home or parish use
The Via Dolorosa, meaning “the sorrowful way”, is the traditional route in Jerusalem along which our Lord traveled during His passion. In the Via Dolorosa Experience DVD you will join the Franciscan friars on their Friday walk and prayer through the real Stations of the Cross---Jesus' last journey from the site of his trial to the site of his crucifixion and later to the site of his resurrection. With this video you are a virtual pilgrim participating in an ancient devotional practice of praying and meditating on each moment of Christ's passion. Readings will appear on the screen along with documentary-style audio and video from the Via Dolorosa procession as if you were right there in Jerusalem. Watch this DVD with friends and family, or utilize the video as a personal time of reflection, praying each of the 14 stations with the exact scripts that the friars are reading. To engage all three senses, seeing, hearing, and feeling, hold a cross in your hands as you are meditating on Our Lord and His passion. On the opening screen choose between English & Spanish.
For young and old, this experience is the next best thing to being there. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I've given it as a gift as well.

Just watched the DVD on Good Friday. What an experience!!! I felt as I am there in Jerusalem with pilgrims from all over the world walking the same path Christ has walked, carrying his cross all the way to Golgotha.
I prayed the way of the cross many times at my church but this time praying, as I was watching the Video, was a completely different experience.
Love the procession with the video images of all 14 stations! Highly Recommended Experience!
Like You are There!

I've had the great blessing to travel to the Holy Land and to actually walk the Via Dolorosa. This DVD gives a realistic presentation and makes me feel like I am there all over again. The length is great for personal or group reflection, especially during Lent or Holy Week.

I bought this for my Mother. The next time I spoke with her, she said she watched it, and said, "I was very disappointed. Simply because of the location(s), there could have been so much more included, both in history and prayer."
