Meditations and Prayers for the Home, Church, or School
The meditations and prayers in this Stations of the Cross book by Jared Dees are short and powerful opportunities for children to encounter Christ especially during the season of Lent. This collection includes five separate meditations to help kids make meaningful connections between the Crucifixion and their everyday lives:
- The Fourteen Stations of the Cross with Images and Prayers
- A Five-Minute Stations of the Cross
- A Family Stations of the Cross
- A School Stations of the Cross
- A Virtues Stations of the Cross
Each set of meditations will take fifteen minutes or less to complete, but the experience will be heartfelt and memorable every time.
Accompanying the mediations are kid-friendly illustrations for each of the fourteen Stations of the Cross by graphic novelist and illustrator Ezekiel Saucedo.
