This beautiful, ancient prayer commemorates successive incidents on Jesus' journey from condemnation by Pilate to his crucifixion and burial. Stations of the Cross is most commonly prayed during Lent, particularly on Fridays especially Good Friday, but can be prayed at any time.
Consider praying the Stations in our prayer garden. Use one of three versions, found in the garden’s box:

For centuries, this popular tradition of blessing homes is associated with today’s solemnity of the Epiphany. For this blessing ritual, you will need chalk and a small bottle of holy water. Begin by gathering family members and friends around the front door of your home.
Leader: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Let us pray. May Christ bless this home. Amen.
With chalk, sign the main door: 20 + C + M + B + 19
The numbers represent the new year and the letters represent the initials of the Magi: Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. It may also be interpreted as the Latin phrase "Christus mansionem benedicat" which means "Christ bless this house."
Leader: A reading from the book of Deuteronomy.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength. These commandments I give you are to be in your hearts. Place them on the door-frames of your home and on your entry gate. The Word of the Lord.
Then move inside to sprinkle each room with holy water.
Bless this household through all the days to come, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.
