Ever since Jesus walked the road to Golgotha, Christians wanted to walk in the actual footsteps of Jesus to the cross in Jerusalem. For most of us this opportunity will not arise. It was the Franciscans who first promoted the use of scenes from the last journey of Jesus to the cross. This was no doubt inspired by the Crusaders who often erected tableaux of places they had visited in the Holy Land. So has developed a devotion which has come to be called the ‘Stations of the Cross.’ Between each station will be time of readings and meditation. The service will be less than an hour in duration.
