Stations of the Cross

ByMary Jane MIller

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Stations of the Cross became a Christian devotional practice in the thirteenth century. This collection of image and text highlights new perspectives on an ancient tradition. Miller has used the ritual metaphorically to journey with Jesus Christ from his trial to his entombment. The participants use Christian art to meditation on the Biblical story. The story of Jesus Christ’s final sufferings reveal themselves like a passion play as we walk with Him to Mount Calvary. Sacred Art is more than biblical story telling. These 15 Stations of the Cross were designed to help navigate through a prescribed set of messages and motif to understand better how we humans fit into Christ's message of love. Three times he meets the Women, three times he falls and is only helped once, He is stripped of his dignity yet is resurrected into light and loving energy. The hope is to understand the ritual practice, which is no longer limited to only church, but speaks of our human capacity to go beyond suffering. Stations of the Cross is an ancient prayer form. Catholics and most Christians use religious rituals and prayer forms for meditation and reflection. The Biblical story of Jesus Christ’s final sufferings reveal themselves like a passion play as we walk with Him to Mount Calvary. The visual art is a beautiful contemporary compliment.
