Stations of the Cross


During Lent, and especially during the Holy Week (next week) the so called ‘Stations of the Cross’ are contemplated. These are fourteen pictures or statutes. They depict what happened to Jesus on the road to Calvary until his burial, from the moment Jesus is condemned by Pilate. People walk by those stations and pause at each one to meditate and say prayers. In almost all Catholic churches the stations are on the walls of the nave. Sometimes the stations are in the woods, a garden, or on a road up a hill. The reason to contemplate these stations is a mix of adoration, devotion and imitation. 

On the picture above the stations take the form of a comic.
