Stations of the Cross by young people

During the first year of Kenosis: Teen Disciples for Love and Life, we realized that we had scheduled a meeting during Holy Week.  It didn't seem appropriate to study a new topic that night, so we decided to spend the evening praying the Stations of the Cross.  We gave the teens a theme -- looking at the stations through the lens of self-gift -- and asked them to write the meditations that we would pray together.  Their reflections were beautiful and profound, and we shared them on this blog in the following days.

Last year we had another evening dedicated to the Stations of the Cross, this time with the theme of the joy and fruitfulness of suffering.

Throughout the year, but particularly during lent, these reflections are some of the most searched for and clicked on posts on the blog.  In order to draw your attention to this wonderful opportunity for prayer and to make it easier to have all of the links in one post, below are links to the meditations the young people prepared.

As these were prepared by young people, I think it also points to the reality that our youth are capable (and desire) far more than we often give them credit.
