Via Crucis II

Station II: Jésus chargé de sa croix

Bishop Armand François Marie de Charbonnel (b.1802 France) had these handsomely carved Stations of the Cross imported from France and installed in the Cathedral. The inscriptions are thus in His Excellency's mother tongue. The stations are a beautiful testimony to de Charbonnel’s generosity and to his good taste.

V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
