Thought some of you might be interested in seeing some pix from this year's Stations of the Cross at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America located in N.E. DC


Getting ready for the Stations



Little Sisters of the Poor waiting on station 1



Some of the brothers getting ready



And there comes the Cross. BTW, as a matter of trivia, there is a relic in the cross; however, no, I don't know what relic (if somebody knows, please share it with the rest of us)



And starting off with the first station: Jesus is condemned to death.



Some of the crowd at the beginning...



You start to get a scope of the crowd here at the fourth station



But this one shows it much better. There are many more behind me than those that you see ahead of me.

The Franciscan Monastery is one of the better kept secrets in Washington DC.


If you get an opportunity to visit, I highly recommend it. It's only a few blocks away from the National Shrine and CUA, so it would be a shame not to stop and enjoy the gardens if you're in the area anyway.
