PRAYING THE STATIONS OF MERCY WITH POPE FRANCIS


Pope Francis has called the Church to become more merciful. We are invited to imitate Christ who, in his way of the cross, offered mercy to the world. Even though we continued to live in selfishness and sin, he loved us with the tender heart of God. He revealed God's face to us: a Father of Mercy. These Stations are in the traditional arrangement and each includes a verse of the wonderful Stabat Mater, fitting for the Lord of Mercy. During each week of Lent, Ken Kniepmann of the John Paul II Healing Center breaks open one of the seven deadly sins (pride, lust, gluttony, sloth, anger, envy, and greed) and its corresponding virtue (humility, chastity, abstinence, diligence, patience, kindness, and liberality). You'll start by learning about the sin and how it manifests itself in daily life and thought patterns. Then you'll move into reflection and prayer exercises that guide you through the process of renouncing that week's sin and resolving to adopt that week's virtue.
