Way of the Cross
On the hill is the Way of the Cross. Fourteen stations evoke different moments of the Passion of Jesus.
It is an old but never exceeded devotion, since it is inspired by the Gospel accounts. In the calm and freshness of the undergrowth of majestic maples, we see life as a pilgrimage, a rediscovery of the love of God for us, a meaning to our trials, sufferings and failures.
Saint Alphonsus says that “the saints have become such through the devotion to the Passion and there is no one which had such a great love of the Passion; it is the cross by which they have learned the art of the love of God”.
Each scene includes about five persons in cast bronze, cast in the workshops in Vaucouleurs, France. Construction of this Way of the Cross was spread over a long period, from 1913 to 1945.
