At the Cross her station keeping,
stood the mournful Mother weeping,
close to Jesus to the last.
-Stabat Mater Hymn
The season of Lent begins next week on Ash Wednesday, February 14! Are you prepared?
Lent is a time of prayer, penance and reflection. Among our many acts and observances, Catholics commemorate the suffering and death of our Lord by praying the Stations of the Cross.
The National Shrine is pleased to offer this beautiful Way of the Cross devotional booklet to aid your contemplation of the Lord’s Passion during this Lenten Season.
Featuring meditations on the fourteen Stations written by Saint Alphonsus Liguori, we hope this booklet will be a prayerful means of uniting with Our Lord in his suffering and with his mother Mary, who stood at the foot of the Cross.
Request your copy today and make a donation to the National Shrine using our secure online form.
Thank you for your generous support of Mary’s Shrine. May the peace of Our Lord and His Blessed Mother be with you as you prepare to begin the journey of Lent.
