The Way of the Cross

Voices heard in a crowd

Poetry by W.G. Hughes

First Station - Jesus is Condemned to Death

Pilate to his wife, Claudia

Second Station - Jesus Carried His Cross

A Roman soldier speaks

Third Station - Jesus Falls for the First Time

Rabbi Jochanan muses

Fourth Station - Jesus Meets His Afflicted Mother

Mary speaks

Fifth Station - Simon Helps Jesus Carry His Cross

Simon complains

Sixth Station - Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

Veronica reflects

Seventh Station - Jesus Falls the Second Time

A Nazarene speaks

Eighth Station - Jesus Meets the Daughters of Jerusalem

They speak

Ninth Station - Jesus Falls the Third Time

The Magdalene meditates

Tenth Station - Jesus is Stripped of His Garments

Salome, mother of Zebedee's sons, watches

Eleventh Station - Jesus is Nailed to the Cross

A soldier talks to Jesus

Twelfth Station - Jesus Dies on the Cross

The centurion speaks

Thirteenth Station - Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross

John, the Beloved, speaks

Fourteenth Station - The Burial of Jesus

Joseph of Arimathaea speaks

Ashes to Easter | Stations
