Stations of the Cross (from Lent 1991 at the Colosseum) - Pope St. John Paul II
by Pope St. John Paul II
given on Good Friday, 1991, Colosseum
On Good Friday 1991 in the Roman Colosseum, Pope John Paul II created new Stations of the Cross. He altered the fourteen traditional stations and added a fifteenth station on the Resurrection. All of the Stations His Holiness used were based on incidents in the Gospels.
Father Champlin adapts these historic stations—with their richly biblical approach—by featuring a short passage from the Gospel Passion narratives, a brief reflection, and a response adapted from the Psalms, set as a motet.
