This piece of interesting news came to my attention…. about a non-profit project by an artist who has found idle train trips an amazingly fruitful time for prayer & contemplation – no doubt an inspiration from the good Lord!
A London train line now has its own Stations of the Cross thanks to a creative artist who decided to create a special version of the Stations of the Cross for the London Underground. Called Stations of the King’s Cross, the project seeks to help travellers on the Circle line of the Tube, to pray the Way of the Cross using 14 paper-cut illustrations available as a booklet.

The Catholic Herald covered the story behind this prayerful and original artwork when the booklets first started to appear. The project was also highlighted on the BBC and in the national press. Such was the interest in the inspiring event that publications even as far afield as Sweden, Australia, and the US also ran articles on the project. Stations of the King’s Cross has led to copycat booklets in Glasgow, Canberra, Ipswich, and Paris, and was voted ‘Most Creative’ in Best of Lent 2012 on the Pray Tell blog.

Have a great week and God Bless.
