Stations of the Risen Christ: Resurrection Meditations is meant to inspire people to pray and meditate on the Scriptural passages relating to Jesus Christ rising from the dead, and his subsequent appearances to over 500 disciples. Stations of the Risen Christ capture fourteen vignettes from the Gospel writings of John, Luke, and Matthew. A brief meditation follows each of the fourteen Scripture readings to motivate Christians to pray and acquire a deeper understanding of these divine mysteries. By praying the Stations of the Risen Christ during the Easter season to complement the Stations of the Cross for Lent, we are witnessing to our belief in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and that Christ will clothe us in a resurrected body in the days to come.
