III. Holy Sepulchre and Liturgy
In addition to the Liturgy, the Franciscans have created other popular pious activities: the daily procession at the Holy Sepulchre, the Stations of the Cross through the streets of Jerusalem, pilgrimages to the Shrines of the Holy Land. The Stations of the Cross through the streets of Jerusalem, held every Friday at three in the afternoon and ending at the Holy Sepulchre. The Way of the Cross is nothing other than the path of following Jesus, of the God who shares the sufferings of men. In the Holy City it is done in the same places where He passed. The Way of the Cross is a path of hope, because “from this Sepulchre” the Lord rose again.
