This is a beautiful and rustic 14-piece set of the Stations of the Cross Shrine for outdoor or indoor use. Each station in the shrine is made of 100% natural cedar wood and finished with rustic exterior grade stain for UV ray protection. This shrine makes an inspiring display for gardens, prayer paths, Church yards, or home chapels. Each wooden station has a hook on the back for hanging or it can be mounted on a stake with screws for the outdoors. Putting up the Stations of the Cross is an ideal project for youth groups or Boy Scouts.
The striking four-color images are reproductions of the Stations of the Cross by Bertucci. With the Blessed Mother taking over as the central figure in stations 13 and 14, these Stations of the Cross offer an additional element of Marian devotion that is unique to this set. Each image plate is assembled by hand in Steubenville, Ohio. The plates are comprised of a semi-gloss vinyl print mounted on ACM (Aluminum Composit Panel), a material commonly used in the small business world for outdoor signage because of its durability and low cost. ACM plates are UV-resistant, guaranteed for 3-5 years of perfect image fidelity with minimal fading.
The Stations of the Cross are so called because we move from one area, Station, to another in the church or along an outdoor path, where the Stations of the Cross are depicted, praying devotions in memory of each Station of His suffering and death. The Stations of the Cross are depictions of The Way of the Cross of Christ from His being brought before Pilate and His condemnation to death through His Crucifixion and Burial in the Sepulcher. These depictions are in picture form, bas relief and sculptures.
The tradition of praying the Stations of the Cross in the chapel (or church) began with St. Francis of Assisi and spread in the Roman Catholic Church in the medieval period. Most Roman Catholic churches now have The Stations of the Cross depicted in some way in their church for devotions, usually along the side walls and in a dedicated pathway on the grounds of the church. We can also find The Stations of the Cross in many Lutheran and Anglican churches. The Way of the Cross devotions are prayed year round but especially during Lent and particularly on the Fridays of Lent and Good Friday. Names for the Stations of the Cross: Way of the Cross; Latin: Via Crucis; Via Dolorosa – Way of Sorrows; or The Way.
