The Web of the Cross



Jesus of the People Janet McKenzie
This online meditation was launched in 2000, the Year of Great Jubilee. I have published it  each year since  with updates to the links and reflections  as some material goes offline and new resources become available.

The Stations in this collection  are those used in the Melbourne Way of the Cross, an ecumenical devotion which began on Good Friday  2000 and  has continued each year as pilgrims process to Churches around the city.

The image, Jesus of the People by Janet McKenzie is kindly allowed for use by the artist. Janet's Stations of the Cross set has been published in a work featuring writings by Joan Chittister. 

How to Pray Online

Set aside a regular time for this prayer, perhaps when you ‘boot up” each day or as a way of closing your day’s work.Take your time to let the image music or text find a home in your heart.

I suggest you spread the” Stations” over several days or the whole season of Lent.The box indicating the number of each station is linked to the Scripture reference. The title of each station takes you to a  web site with a pastoral response.for your prayer and consideration.The music on this site reflects some of my own journey across various traditions that I hope you find inspiring and challenging.
