Houghton MI (Low 32 Cloudy to Partly Sunny High 60)
The weather in Houghton has been a little chilly, had frost warnings last night but don't worry, our landscaping and lawn is just fine :-)
Continuing our review of the Grotto of the Redemption in West Bend Iowa.
In the old city of Jerusalem there is the Via Dolorosa, "Way of Grief", "Way of Sorrows", "Way of Suffering", or simply "Painful Way" in Latin, the path where Jesus was led on his way to the Crucifixion. Every Catholic Church has the Stations of the Cross and there are some outdoor ones, but we have seen none has gorgeous as the ones in the Grotto.
The First Station - Jesus is Condemned to Death
The Second Station - Jesus Carries His Cross
The Third Station - Jesus Falls the 1st Time
The Fourth Station - Jesus Meets His Sorrowful Mother
The Fifth Station - Simon Carries The Cross
The Sixth Station - Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus
The Seventh Station - Jesus Falls the Second Time
The Eighth Station - Jesus Meets the Holy Women of Jerusalem
The Ninth Station - Jesus Falls a Third Time
The Tenth Station - Jesus is Stripped of His Clothes
The Eleventh Station - Jesus is Nailed to the Cross
The Twelfth Station - Jesus Dies on the Cross
The Thirteenth Station - Jesus is Taken Down From the Cross
The Fourteenth Station - Jesus is Laid in the Sepulcher
A different view of the Fourteenth Station
Here are the Stations from higher in the Grotto
Another aspect of a truly amazing and spiritual place.
Till next time,
