The Stations of the Cross – The Passion Week took on a whole new meaning since going to Israel!  I walked the streets where Jesus carried my sin to Golgotha.  We started at the top of the Mt. of Olives near Bethany.  We walked to the Garden of Gethsemane and then up the Ascent to the Lion’s gate.

Station 1 – near St. Anne’s we sang hymns of praise together. Then we started with the Flagelation and Condemnation of Jesus.

Station #2 Jesus Carries His Cross & Pilate gives His Behold the Man Speech
