The Stations of The Cross

After Jesus died and rose from the dead, many people reflected upon his passion and death. They began to make visits to Jerusalem and walk in Jesus' footsteps. The street Jesus walked is still called Via Dolorosa, the way of pain. People would stop along the way and remember what had happened to Jesus.

The Season of Lent is a natural time for this devotion. We say that the Stations of the Cross are like railroad stations because we stop at every one. We stop and think about Jesus on his journey to die on the Cross, His walk of love. He loved us so much that He gave His life for love of us.
