Scriptural Way of The Cross

The Scriptural Way of the Cross or Scriptural Stations of the Cross is a version of the traditional Stations of the Cross inaugurated as a Roman Catholic devotion by Pope John Paul II on Good Friday 1991. Thereafter John Paul II performed the scriptural version many times at the Colosseum in Rome on Good Fridays during his reign. The scriptural version was not intended to invalidate the traditional version, rather it was meant to add nuance to an understanding of the Passion.

Famous quotes containing the word cross:

    All pathways by His feet are worn,
    His strong heart stirs the ever-beating sea;

    His cross is every tree.
