The Stations of the Cross
The 'stations' or stages of the journey take us from the moment that Jesus is condemned to death by Pilot, to his resurrection in Glory.
Starting at the Condemnation of Jesus in the north aisle and ending at the Burial or Resurrection of Jesus, both in the south aisle.
During a Stations of the Cross service the priest and people move to each picture in turn where they are led in prayer and appreciation of the significance of that stage of the journey.
Station 1 Jesus is condemned to Death.
Therefore, when the chief priests and officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, "Crucify Him, crucify Him!" Pilate said to them, "You take Him and crucify Him, for I find no fault in Him."
Station 2 Jesus carries his Cross.
And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.
Station 3 Jesus falls for the first time.
Station 4 Jesus meets his Mother.
Station 5 Simon helps Jesus carry his cross
Now as they led Him away, they laid hold of a certain man, Simon a Cyrenian, who was coming from the country, and on him they laid the cross that he might bear it after Jesus.
Station 6 Veronica wipes the face of Jesus.
Station 7 Jesus falls the second time.
Station 8 Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem.
And a great multitude of the people followed Him, and women who also mourned and lamented Him. But Jesus, turning to them, said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
Station 9 Jesus falls the third time.
Station 10 Jesus is stripped.
Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece.
Station 11 Jesus is nailed to the cross
And when they crucified Him, they divided His garments, casting lots for them to determine what every man should take.
Station 12 Jesus dies on the Cross.
And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
Station 13 Jesus is taken down from the cross
This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given to him.
Station 14 Jesus is laid in the tomb
When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed.
Station 15 Jesus rises from the dead
And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.
