Faith at Altitude

Religion and spirituality in the shadow of Pikes Peak

Friday, April 14, 2006


On Saturday, The Gazette will run a story on the Stations of the Cross -- a predominantly Roman Catholic rite in which believers pray and meditate on 14 episodes that take place during Jesus' last hours. Most parishes have these stations.

I spent a lot of time in parishes over the last month, checking out various stations. I was struck by how different each was from the next. Most were obviously unique, crafted specifically for the parish. For Catholics, I'm sure these representations are very moving -- particularly viewed today, on Good Friday. It's somber art for a somber holy day.
