Way of the Cross: Stabat Mater

23 views 2 days ago
The "Stabat Mater" (the "Mother was Standing") is a 13th-century Catholic hymn about Mary's pain at the foot of her Son's cross. "The message of the Stabat Mater focuses on the spiritual and emotional bond, which unites Mary and all Christians to the death of her Son on the Cross." The Stabat Mater was introduced into the Liturgy gradually until 1727 when it was prescribed as a sequence for the "Mass of the Seven Sorrows of Mary" on Sept. 15. It has been retained as an optional sequence for Sept. 15 and as the hymn for the Office of Readings, Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer in the new Liturgy of Hours. Its popularity is reflected by its use in the the Stations of the Cross. (Marian Library/International Marian Research Institute, Dayton, Ohio). Learn more: http://bit.ly/1gWkDSH.

Way of the Cross: Stations and Meditations from Arkansas Play

The following Stations of the Cross offer reflections from Catholics in Arkansas. They are accompanied by illustrations from both indoor and outdoor stations at churches and monasteries throughout the state. There are also photos from live reenactments of Christ's passion and death, which are held each year on Good Friday. Together the meditations and artwork show the beauty and diversity of God's revelation to humanity. The Diocese of Little Rock may encompass the entire state of Arkansas, but we are one in the body of Christ.
