The following Stations of the Cross offer reflections from Catholics in Arkansas. They are accompanied by illustrations from both indoor and outdoor stations at churches and monasteries throughout the state. There are also photos from live reenactments of Christ's passion and death, which are held each year on Good Friday. Together the meditations and artwork show the beauty and diversity of God's revelation to humanity. The Diocese of Little Rock may encompass the entire state of Arkansas, but we are one in the body of Christ. Order on DVD.
