Stations of the Cross

The custom of meditating upon Jesus’ final journey to the cross during the season of Lent dates back to the Middle Ages. The fourteen stations represent the scriptural and traditional events of Jesus’ journey from condemnation before Pilate to his death on the cross and his entombment.

R: And she conceived by the Holy Ghost.

V: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

R: Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

The Rosary

The Rosary is the story of our salvation in Jesus Christ, demonstrated by his life. This is done in three sets of five Mysteries. The first is called the Joyful Mysteries, which center upon the Incarnation and the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary and God becoming flesh.

Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families

These devotions follow the basic structure of the Daily Office of the Church.

When more than one person is present, the Reading and the Collect should be read by one person, and the other parts said in unison, or in some other convenient manner.

For convenience, appropriate Psalms, Readings, and Collects are provided in each service. When desired, however, the Collect of the Day, or any of the Collects appointed in the Daily Offices, may be used instead.

The Psalms and Readings may be replaced by those appointed in:

  1. The Lectionary for Sundays, Holy Days, the Common of Saints, and Various Occasions, Book of Common Prayer, page 888.
  2. The Daily Office Lectionary, Book of Common Prayer, page 934.
  3. Some other manual of devotion which provides daily selections for the Church Year.
