Roman Stations of the Cross - Prie dieu - 02-06-2013

With Lent coming up I'm considering which little extra I'll be including in my prayer life.  I'm curious to find out which traditional method of the Stations was employed in the City of Rome (pre-Vatican II of course).  Many thanks.

I'm not sure if there was official meditations prescribed for Rome at any particular time, but the method of St. Leonard of Port Maurice--the Apostle of the Stations--might be a good choice given your criteria.  He was the first to erect them in the Roman Colliseum back in the 1700s.  I'm not sure if he was the absolute first to bring them to Rome in general, but he definitely spread them there and made them much more  popular.  Here are his meditations:

Thanks Sesbastian. :) I'm not necessarily looking for one that was necessarily "official".  Just the most common as practised.  Such as starting the rosary with the "Deus in adjutorium +".  :) Now if I could just find those Stations there in Latin..!
