Via Dolorosa – Way of the Sorrow
Sometimes called the Way of the Cross or the Way of Sorrow, the Via Dolorosa represents the route that Jesus followed, from condemnation to crucifixion. The way is flanked by nine Stations of the Cross,. Marie garcia Shaffner has her hand on one of the stations of the cross. The nine stations are listed below.
The trial and flagellation of Jesus by Pilate
The speech given by the Gospel of John to Pilate
The first Fall (three noted locations where Jesus stumbled or lowered himself during his travel for various reasons) adjacent to the Polish Catholic Chapel
The first Encounter (four noted locations where Jesus encountered various people along his walk, two of these walks have textual references, while the other two remain tradition) with Mary
The second Encounter with Simon of Cyrene
The third Encounter with Veronica
The second Fall stands across from a Franciscan chapel near a crossroad
The fourth Encounter with the pious women
The third Fall is not on the Via Dolorosa at all. Instead, it stands beneath the entranceway to two monasteries, the Ethiopian and the Coptic Orthodox Monasteries, that together create the roof of the Chapel of Saint Helena.
