Stations of the Cross.

I like to delve into the depths of human psyche its unfolding path and have just stumbled on the Fourteen Stations of the Cross. I’m relating it to journeys travelled and eternal stories of life. Struggling to be with the story at the heart of it, which is an unbearable, bloody and miserable mystery.  Especially as the stations end with the tomb. In my life, how often have I carried a cross and then been nailed to it?

In my meanderings I found one contemporary artist who painted all 14. They show the pain in red and the movement of the cross in black. With a rolled stone at the end. I want to up load them – I hope that is ok, as I’d recommend going to Jen Nortons websites. Also I’m curios if the set has been sold? It seems like a bargain for any church. I suggest building a church just to house them.
