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!
