The Stations of the Eucharist

In order to promote greater devotion to the Holy Eucharist, stained glass windows of the Stations of the Eucharist were installed at Santuario Eucaristico. A conference on the Eucharistic Stations was then conducted last March 25, 2017.

A Prayer Booklet was provided to our parishioners during the conference where Fr. Froilan R. A. Briones, SSS, our speaker, introduced the Stations of the Eucharist. In his talk, he stated that the stations was originally designed by the Poor Clare Nuns of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama. They have a monstrance-like garden which leads one around the twelve (12) stations with corresponding image and scriptural texts from the Old Testament and continuing into the New Testament. As stated in the website of the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament:

“The purpose of the Stations of the Holy Eucharist is to help the Faithful deepen both their understanding and appreciation of the Source and Summit of our Faith: The Most Holy Eucharist. Through the whole of salvation history, God Our Father has prepared His people for the Gift of His Beloved Son, and also for the Gift of His Real Presence in the Most Holy Eucharist. Throughout the Old Testament, the Eucharist was prefigured. And in the New Testament these shadows gave way to Reality.”

We are glad to have finally provided our parishioners more information about the Eucharist. It will surely help one where to find references of the Eucharist in the scriptures from the Old Testament to the New Testament. These references are proof of the doctrine of the Eucharist; that the Eucharist is not only a Sacred Tradition but is significantly found in the Sacred Scripture.

Below are the 12 Stations of the Eucharist with it’s corresponding image and scriptural text.
