Via Crucis I


Station I: Jesus is Condemned to Death

I suppose you know that in almost every Catholic church around the world you will find 14 numbered and blessed stations such as this one.  They depict particular scenes from the passion of Christ and at St. Michael's Cathedral they are hung high on the walls around the nave.  In a public liturgy or as a private devotion we kneel at each station in its turn and prayerfully contemplate its significance and our own sinfulness. 

Never prayed the Via Crucis?  St. Aphonsus Liguori can walk you through it.
