Easter, also called Pascha or Resurrection Sunday,is the festival where we commemorate the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day after his burial following his crucifixion. It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a 40-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance.
The Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows or the Via Crucis, refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. The stations grew out of imitations of Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The object of the stations is to help us faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ. In this recording you can see Fr. Henri ten Have praying he Way of the Cross, passing the beautiful stations made by Jan Toorop located in the St. Bernulphus church in Oosterbeek.
