The Stations of the Cross are a fourteen step or devotional, focusing on Jesus’ last day on Earth as a human being, beginning with His condemnation to death by Pontius Pilate to His being laid in the tomb. They are found in Roman Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, and Methodist churches. The Stations are used as a mini-pilgrimage, imitating the Via Dolorosa, or Way of Sorrows, in Jerusalem to Mount Calvary. Tradition holds that the pilgrimage was initially followed by the Blessed Mother; though, the earliest mention of a Via Sacra, or Holy Way, was in the mid 15th Century, and permission was granted to erect Stations inside all churches in 1731 by Pope Clement XII.
