Stations of the Cross from the Cathedral of Saint Patrick

Posted on April 05, 2020 in: News, Reflections, Lent

Stations of the Cross from the Cathedral of Saint Patrick

The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims to Jerusalem who would retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. Later, for the many who wanted to pass along the same route, but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that eventually took the form of the fourteen stations currently found in almost every church. 

The object of the stations is to help the Christian faithful make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.
