Stations of the Cross (Banawa, Cebu City)
Holy Week is a sacred time of the year for Christians. During Lenten Season, we commemorate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
For most Cebuanos, it is our tradition to reflect on the passion and death of Jesus by procession, or by going to The Way of the Cross in Banawa, Cebu City. I was so amazed when I first went to this place because of the life-size statues and breathtaking views. This blog post will only focus on the 14 Stations of the Cross. To my friends who asked me about the place, I made a separate post with the travel guide and some of the pictures.
Station I: Jesus is condemned to death
Station II: Jesus carries His cross
Station III: Jesus falls for the first time
Station IV: Jesus meets His mother Mary
Station V: Simon helps Jesus carry His cross
Station VI: Veronica wipes the face of Jesus
Station VII: Jesus falls for the second time
Station VIII: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem
Station IX: Jesus falls for the third time
Station X: Jesus is stripped of His clothing
Station XI: Jesus is nailed to the cross – the Crucifixion
Station XII: Jesus dies on the cross
Station XIII: The body of Jesus is taken down from the cross
Station XIV: Jesus is laid in the tomb
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. Have a blessed week!
