Stations of the Cross, is used to signify either a series of pictures or tableaux representing certain scenes in the Passion of Christ, each corresponding to a particular incident, or the special form of devotion connected with such representations.
Stations may be of stone, wood, or metal, sculptured or carved, or they may be merely paintings or engravings. They are usually arranged at intervals around the walls of a church, though sometimes they are to be found in the open air.
There are 14 stations,
1. Christ condemned to death;
2. the cross is laid upon him;
3. His first fall;
4. He meets His Blessed Mother;
5. Simon of Cyrene is made to bear the cross;
6. Christ's face is wiped by Veronica;
7. His second fall;
8. He meets the women of Jerusalem;
9. His third fall;
10. He is stripped of His garments;
11. His crucifixion;
12. His death on the cross;
13. His body is taken down from the cross; and
14. laid in the tomb.
The object of the Stations is to help the faithful to make in spirit, as it were, a pilgrimage to the main scenes of Christ's sufferings and death.
Talking about passion of christ, something which comes to my mind is Pietà by Michelangelo. This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus in the arms of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. Its a marble sculpture in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Below is the photo of that sculpture.
