Just How Many Stations of the Cross Are There?
March 9, 2010 § 3 Comments
Did you know that not everyone marks the stations of the cross in quite the same way? Here at St. Luke’s we traditionally have eight stations. Some churches follow fourteen stations of the cross. A few readers have asked about the different Stations of the Cross. For example, here at St. Luke’s the Sixth Station is “Jesus is nailed to the Cross,” while other churches mark “Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus” as number six.
We’ve been referring to this page from The Passionist Missionaries and thought you might like to take a look too. If you have other links that speak to differing names and numbers for stations, please let us know in the comments.
