The Stations of the Resurrection – Great Focus for the Easter Season

Have you heard of the Resurrection? They’re also know as “Via Lucis“, “Stations of Light“, or “The Way of the Light“. There are 14 stations, and they the counterpart to the Stations of the Cross. Every station is something that happened between Easter and Pentecost, while the risen Jesus was walking around alive on the earth. 

Easter Season Stations of Light

Here is a list of the stations of light. For some of them, I have a dedicated article with kids’ activities for that station, so those ones have links. For the others, I am still working to fill them in! 🙂

Jesus's Resurrection

You can go through with prayers for each station (just like the stations of the cross). Here’s a pdf you can print to go through the stations.
I now have a printable set of the Stations of the Resurrection! This pack includes a beautiful display page (perfect for your Faith Weaver’s binder), and also 1 card for each station. These can be put on a ring, displayed as a bunting, used as educational cards, and in many other ways!

Your kids can also watch this video that includes many of the stations and is totally free on YouTube. I love these little videos! Funny and interesting- not boring or overly corny like most videos I find. 

I made this Easter Symbol Tea that goes through all of the Stations of the Resurrection.
