The Stations of the Cross

P1080127

On the right wall here is the first of fourteen carvings telling the story of the last walk of Jesus to his death. Here he receives his sentence of death from the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate, and you can then follow the story right round the church. You will see him take up his Cross, fall with it three times, meet various people, including his mother Mary, and then you will see him stripped and nailed to the cross and left to die there, before being taken down into the arms of his mother and put into a tomb.
