The Way of the Cross Journal for Children


This inspiring Way of the Cross for Children invites reflection, prayer, and action in a beautiful journal format. Each step along the way, the reader encounters the story of Jesus’ suffering and death in simple, kid-friendly language along with full color illustrations. Children are then invited to imaginatively “enter the story,” using two journal spaces to record their experience and their prayerful response. Finally, readers are invited to imitate Jesus by recording their acts of love and sacrifice. Children are invited to color fancy Easter eggs to keep track of their good works.  In addition to providing children with an introduction to Ignatian imaginative prayer and the practice of journaling, this book familiarizes young readers with the story of Jesus’ Passion, from the Last Supper to Easter.  A brief introduction places the story in the broader context of Jesus’ mission of love and healing.  The Way of the Cross Journal for Children is appropriate for children ages 5 and up; beginning readers may need adult assistance.
