The Stations of the Cross, also known as the Way of the Cross, is a traditional devotion that originated in medieval Europe. It consists of fourteen images or “stations” that depict the final hours of Jesus Christ’s life, from his condemnation to his crucifixion and burial. The devotion is intended to help us meditate on the Passion of Christ and to enter into his suffering and sacrifice. The practice of the Stations of the Cross is often associated with the season of Lent, particularly on Fridays, and is a powerful way to deepen our faith and spirituality. The stations vary slightly depending on the region, but the main events remain the same.
