World’s largest stations of the cross in Rome

Catholic World News - March 11, 2011

The world’s largest stations of the cross have been placed along the Via della Conciliazione in Rome. Sculpted from 22,000 pounds of bronze, the stations include 49 statues and 11 crosses.

Cardinal Angelo Comastri, archpriest of St. Peter’s Basilica, will inaugurate the stations on March 13. Pope Benedict blessed the first station on March 1.

On April 29, the stations will be moved to the city of Coquimbo, Chile, for which they were commissioned.
