Frank Heelan offers Easter reflections inspired by the Stations of the Risen Christ

The concise yet spiritually impactful book will help believers acquire a deeper understanding and renewed appreciation for the Resurrection faith.


The book offers Scriptural meditations on Jesus’ glorious Resurrection that complement praying the “Stations of the Cross” for Christ’s atoning death.  

While there is much to meditate on the crucifixion and resurrection accounts in the Gospels, little emphasis has been given to the events after Easter. For Christian author Frank Heelan, these events are also worthy of meditation and reflection, so he published a book “Stations of the Risen Christ: Easter Reflections” (Lifevest Publishing; 2007).
In his article for ReadersMagnet Authors’ Lounge, the author wrote:
While Christians pray the Stations of the Cross during Lent, there needs to be available for Christians during the Easter season a memorialization of Christ’s Resurrection from the dead, his many appearances to his disciples culminating in his Ascension into heaven, and the sending of the Holy Spirit to guide his disciples and Church.
For that purpose, Heelan wrote the “Stations of the Risen Christ,” which is meant to inspire people to pray and meditate on the Scriptural passages relating to Christ rising from the dead and his subsequent appearances to over 500 disciples.
The book captures fourteen vignettes from the Gospel writings of John, Luke, and Matthew. A brief meditation follows each of the fourteen Scripture readings to motivate Christians to pray and acquire a deeper understanding of these divine mysteries. The heading for each “Station” best explains the Resurrection narrative and miraculous appearances of Jesus Christ to his disciples.
“For centuries, Christians have devoutly prayed the Stations of the Cross,” said Heelan, “to commemorate the suffering and death of Jesus on the cross and to remind us that we also have a share in Christ’s suffering through our daily lives.
“But life does not end with the cross of Christ. It is his Resurrection from the dead and his promise that we also will rise from the dead and receive a resurrected body. It is this hope of what is to come that served as motivation to write the “Stations of the Risen Christ” that would be anchored in the Scriptural passages of the evangelists.”

Gain a newfound understanding and renewed appreciation for the Resurrection faith. Order Frank Heelan’s “Stations of the Risen Christ: Easter Reflections” today on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
