Perhaps you have noticed the pictures or statues that surround the inside of your Catholic Church depicting the last steps of Jesus, as he made his way to the Mount of Calvary. Each of these commemorates the great suffering, and hardship that Jesus endured in his final hours of life, here on earth. Perhaps you have even prayed at each of these stations.
Most of us will never have the opportunity to travel to Jerusalem and physically follow in the steps that Jesus took, according to tradition. But with these images, we can make a Spiritual Pilgrimage, accompanying Jesus along the way. The Stations of the Cross have become one of the most popular devotions and can be found not only in the Catholic Church but in Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist and Western Orthodox.
