A new Stations of the Cross book for kids of all ages

STATIONS OF THE CROSS BOOK

Just in time for Lent!

Looking for a way to deepen your child’s experience this Paschal season? Pick up a copy of the recently released Stations of the Cross for Kids, a book offering short but meaningful meditations on each of the 14 Stations. Written by the beloved Catholic author Regina Doman, whose work includes the widely read children’s book Angel in the Waters, the guide will certainly be enjoyed by readers of every age.

“How do we pick up our cross and follow him?” the introduction asks, making what’s going on in the church service relevant to daily life. The answer is simple but profound, applicable to children (and their parents): “By putting up with … sickness, hardship, pain, or even boredom. When we do this patiently and cheerfully, we are following him.”

The guidebook is mid-size, perfect for little hands. It’s filled with Lenten-themed illustrations by the artist Chris Lewis; classical yet modern in nature. Rich in scripture, traditional prayers and modern verse, the book offers interesting anecdotes about Christ’s Way of the Cross. In addition, history lessons about relevant topics such as Veronica’s Veil, The Destruction of Jerusalem and The Holy Coat of Christ are presented in easy-to-read sidebars.

So whether you’re a parent picking up a couple copies for home, or a parish administrator ordering enough for every pew; whether you’re participating in person or virtually via Zoom, Stations of the Cross for Kids is the book you need in your hand this Lent, if only just to memorize the classic prayer at the bottom of each beautifully rendered page: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you, because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.
