As part of the Living Stations of the Cross at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Salt Lake City, life-sized wooden crosses were offered to any parishioner who wished to carry one during the procession that took place along the streets surrounding the church.
The Living Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows or Via Crucis, refers to a reenactment of the events that Jesus Christ faced on the day of His crucifixion, from his trial before Pontius Pilate to his burial. The Via Crucis is a Catholic popular devotion in many Hispanic countries, and Hispanic congregations in Utah carry on the tradition. During the 14 stations of the Via Crucis, prayers are recited.
