6 April 2012 Anno Dómini

D uring the late Middle Ages, when heathen muslim occupation of the Holy Land prevented devout pilgrims from visiting Christianity's Most Sacred Sites, the faithful made replicas of those Holy Sites in Western and Eastern Europe, where they would come to pray.

Roman Catholics sought greater detail about the Passion of the Lord, beyond what was provided by the Biblical New Testament. They turned to the writings of inspired Dogma and the blessed writings of the doctors of His Church for more information about the last hours of Jesus.

It was from these Holy Sources came the meeting of Jesus and his Mother, the meeting with Veronica, and the suffering and painful falls as our Lord Jesus bore the weight of our sin on the cross, which came to be known as the Stations of the Cross. Pilgrimages of prayerful reflection were made at each station of the cross; erected to reflect the last hours of our Lord - from Pilate's judgment hall to Calvary the place of His crucifiction . By the end of the sixteenth century the present fourteen stations became the tradition for this emotional devotion. The Stabat Mater accompanies the way of the cross.
