Stations of the Cross with Bible passages, plus meditations from Julian of Norwich, selected by the Catholic Poor Clare Sisters at Ty Mam Duw, Wales. Narrated by James Burke-Dunsmore (from Wintershall's Life of Christ). Music from 'Triduum - Contemporary Sacred Music' by David Bevan and Neil Wright. Sung by the Holy Redeemer Choir. The photos are from the Oberammergau Passion Play (Passionsspiele) 1910 and the Gregynog Passion Play 2000. Each station includes the prayers: "We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you. Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world." and "I love you Jesus, my love, above all things; I repent with my whole heart for having offended you. Never permit me to separate myself from you again. Grant that I may love you always, then do with me as you will." Visit Totus2us.com for much more. Totus2us is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Pope John Paul II's motto was to Mary: Totus Tuus - All Yours. Mary is also everything to us - Totus 2us.
