Stations of the Cross

140414140627Government employees participate in the Catholic tradition of the Stations of the Cross on Monday (April 14) held at the Media Center, PIA Building, Visayas Avenue, Quezon City. The Stations of the Cross began as the practice of pious pilgrims to Jerusalem who would retrace the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. Later, for the many who wanted to pass along the same route but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that eventually took the form of the 14 stations currently found in almost every church. Similarly, the 150 Hail Marys that were recited for the rosary were an adaptation of the medieval monastic practice of reciting the 150 Psalms in the Psalter. (PNA photos by Johnny D. Guevarra)
