All families know what the Passion and death of Jesus is all about, because we all suffer. And if we try to learn and grow through our suffering, we can gain insights into the beauty of Christ's resurrection. Suffering can be as profound as the death of a family member or as simple as a scraped knee. All suffering is an opportunity to participate in the suffering of Jesus, a suffering that saves us from sin and death and leads us to new life. This simple family ritual will help you get in touch with the mystery of Christ's suffering that is already present and working in the events and patterns of your family life.
Each station has short parts for one leader and up to 5 readers. Traditional images of Christ's Passion are paired with contemporary images children can identify with. The station ends with a focus question to discuss or reflect on.
