AUDIO: Way of the Cross in different versions read by Fr. Z

Here are my audio projects of the Way of the Cross.


For priests, especially, try The Way Of The Cross For Priests from the Benedictines of Silverstream Priory.  HERE.  Would you consider getting copies of this for your priests where you are?  Lay people: pray it for priests.

Below are readings of the Via Crucis, the Way of the Cross, composed by

  • Joseph Card. Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, for the 2005 Good Friday observance at the Colosseum in Rome
  • St. Alphonus Liguori
  • Bl. John Henry Newman
  • Silverstream Priory – The Way Of The Cross For Priests

There are two versions of the Way by St. Alphonsus Liguori. One is plain with just my voice. The other is the same voice recording but with the Gregorian chant Sequence Stabat Mater interlaced between the stations.

In times past, before updating the blog software, I could post these all in one post with multiple players. But that ability is gone. The most popular of these was the version by Joseph Ratzinger. It was downloaded some 24000 times.  Now my stats are limited to the plugin player (top).
