Stations of the Cross

As I prepare a service of music and meditation based upon the "Stations of the Cross" I have come across some Stations from the Cathedral of Christ the King Liverpool accompanied by a short audio reading and prayer. They are posted on the Catholic Church in England and Wales website. Have a look and listen to them here. I've never been a great fan of the Stations. Perhaps the prayer "I love you Jesus, my love above all things . . . . etc" put me off. Isn't it a bit dishonest ? Jesus isn't my love above all things. If he was I'd be sinless ! The passion narratives in the gospels especially John's Gospel suit me just fine.
