Review: Stations of the Cross for Children

Stations of the Cross for Children by Julianne M. Will
Our Sunday Visitor, 2005, 32 pages, paperback.

This small
booklet can make a nice resource for a child during Stations of the Cross devotions.

Each set of double pages depicts a full page illustration in a simplified iconic format and a page of text. Under the title of each station, in bold, is the traditional prayer of the Church: We adore you, o Christ and we praise you, because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

The language is directed towards children, and it has a personal and sincere tone. In a letter format, each opens with a Dear Jesus greeting and ends with an Amen. Subjects revolve around the everyday life of a child and the prayers are very nicely worded. See the sample page below.

This is a very nice resource, especially for Lent.
