The Way of The Cross - Station 12

 

Station Twelve – Via Dolorosa - Jesus Dies On the Cross.

According to tradition, at his last breath, Jesus looked to the sky and said: ‘’forgive them, father, for they know not what they do’’ (Luke 23, 34). Afterwards, Jesus is crucified and dies on the cross. Tradition tells that Adam was buried underneath the rock of Golgotha and that Jesus’ blood dripped onto Adam’s skull, therefore absolving humanity of all its sins including Adam’s original sin. This site is identified as the altar of crucifixion at the church of the Holy Sepulchre.
