The Fifteenth Station

Jesus Rises (Omitted during Lent)

“If Christ has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins.”
(1 Corinthians 15:17)

The powerful ending to the film offers an important lesson. The story of sin and death doesn’t sum up the story of Christ. And it doesn’t sum up the story of our Christian lives, either. The film’s advertising tag line “He came to die” is true. But he also came to rise and to live with us forever.

Pray this prayer from your heart: Lord Jesus, we are moved by the words, “Behold, I am making all things new!” It is at your resurrection that you fulfilled this promise. Make us new men and women in you. Amen.

Pray one of each prayer: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be



Let us pray the Apostles’ Creed for the intentions of the Holy Father.

I believe in God …

Lord Jesus, our Way of the Cross devotion is done. But now we begin another way of the cross, as we take up our cross to follow you each day. Help us carry our crosses with joy, knowing that you share our burdens with us. Amen.
