Estamos muy contentos de poder ofrecer a todos los hispanohablantes la meditación del Vía Crucis en su idioma ahora.
We are very pleased to be able to offer to all Spanish speaking people the Way of the Cross meditation in their language now.
Furthermore, we thought that the following could be maybe helpful:
A small instruction
or help for meditation with the pictures, for those who never have worked with it before in this way.
The Way of the Cross should invite you to meditate and the pictures should help you to approach the events in your mind, in your imagination. For this you need a quiet place, and for each station and of course for each picture also enough time (about 15 min).
The contemplation is not only about “What is to be seen in the picture”, but rather “How is it depicted?” and “What appeals to me (through the picture)”. This means that the viewer has to get involved with the picture and must not remain on the surface. He must respond to the play of light and shadow and allow himself to be captivated by it. On what is to be seen superficially, but also on what could be discovered in secret. Each of the pictures thus tells one or more little stories that open up to the viewer’s imagination. The picture is nothing fixed or finished, it is a space of possibilities. And this space, together with the text, allows the viewer to immerse himself in the picture and become so part of it.
