Default Stations of the Cross Icons

Does anyone know where to get an Icon Set of the Stations of the Cross then? I know its a latinization and blah blah blah. I like the Stations, and I think the spiritual reality of an icon helps me to meditate and "be there" more than just an artistic representation.

And not Monastery Icons!!

Thanks!!!!

RC bookstores? Some bigger ones may have them.

There's nothing wrong with Latin devotions as long as its personal devotions and not something encouraged by an Eastern Church. I still follow my First Friday devotion to the Sacred Heart. I do it on my own and not because my parish has First Friday services devoted to the Sacred Heart. Its a purely personal devotion.

Iconographer who has done already a set of stations. No clue about her, but the work is visually appealing.

Polish iconographic relief Crucifix with stations:

From EWTN's shop.

Monastery Icons also does a set, but Due to their history.... I won't link to it, and would suggest avoiding it.

Check also with your local orthodox Iconographer... many will take commission works, especially for smaller works.

I don't know if the Stations of the Cross are a "Latinization."

I do know that they are widely popular in Eastern Europe and I have two copies of the Stations published by Orthodox.

They are so beautifully rendered within the Eastern liturgical context that I wish parishes in the UGCC (who have gotten rid of this service in Lent) would take them up againi using these Orthodox versions!

In one of them, a large Cross is carried with the priest in procession and at every station (this version has 12 stations) the priest stops before reading the prescribed prayers, takes the Cross in his own hands and blesses the people with it.

The Orthodox Saint Tikhon (in the world: Timothy Sokolovsky, an ethnic Ukrainian) of Zadonsk was a great man of God who called everyone to read the Bible daily, say the Jesus Prayer, receive Holy Communion frequently, attend the Church Services etc. And he had a life size version of iconic representations of the Stations of Cross in his cell!

Dear Friend,

The copies I have are not in English, unfortunately.

Otherwise, they are like the Latin Catholic Stations with scriptural readings and special Eastern prayers like troparia and kontakia. One Orthodox version I have has 14 stations plus the Station of the Resurrection.

There is also a very beautiful Orthodox service of the "Passia" usually served on the first four Fridays of Lent and on each Friday there is the reading of the two chapters of one of the four Gospels re: the Passion of our Lord. After this, there can be an akathist to the Passion of Christ or the Stations of the Cross or some other service.

On the other hand, one may do the Stations of the Cross while before a traditional Eastern icon of the Crucifixion. In fact, to do them within the Eastern tradition would mean that one isn't moving about the Church from station to station (and all services must be done facing East anyway).
