Angels of the Passion: A Way of the Cross

Sister Malinda Gerke shares with you meditations on the stations of the cross. Her writing is narrated by Rose Cooper, Michael Krueger, Vicki-Lopez Kaley and Barb Kruse, all affiliates with FSPA. The illustrations of the angels are clippings made from the sixteen stained glass windows found in Mary of the Angels Chapel, St. Rose Convent, La Crosse, Wisconsin. These windows are unique to this chapel, created by the Zettler Stained Glass Company, a branch of the Royal Bavarian Institute of Art, Munich, Germany. They were commissioned by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration for use in the chapel which was built between 1902 and 1906.

The illustrations of the stations are of the hand carved beech wooden plaques created by the Hackner Altar Company of La Crosse, Wisconsin, from original designs by Professor Klein, Vienna, Iowa. These stations are unique to the chapel.  The first section of each station is created as the voice of the angel featured in the window. The second section is a meditation on the wooden station plaques in Mary of the Angels Chapel. 

The reflection is personalized to the user of this complementary booklet: Angels of the Passion: A Way of the Cross.
