Stations of the Cross Photoessay - 8 - Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

The women of Jerusalem station has always seemed intriguing. He met the women there on the streets, but what of it? What was the consequence? The description of the station does not say what happens. He just meets them.

I believe they showed support, love, devotion, and adoration. Like these women making offerings to the Buddha, the women of Jerusalem probably expressed their sadness at Jesus's plight but nonetheless loved him.

These statues are in front of the giant Buddha Tian Tan on Lantau Island in Hong Kong, the fog and impending rain creating a reverent and mystical air. (Hong Kong, April 2013)
