Why we pray the Stations of the Cross: They bring us to “that liminal moment where Christ Jesus suffers and dies for us”

From the Diocese of Helena comes this thoughtful reflection by Father Sean Raftis on why we pray the Stations. “Through the Stations of the Cross,” he observes, “we are at that liminal moment where Christ Jesus suffers and dies for us, for our sins and for our redemption, so that He can unlock the gates of heaven.”
