Erecting the Stations in our Old Mass Chapel, Stronsay


Yesterday during the storm
we erected the
Stations of the Cross
in Our Lady's Chapel
Stronsay.

Br. Nicodemus Mary
measuring the cord out for hanging each Station.

They are beautiful old Stations.
The last three, closest to the altar,
are markedly darker than the others
reflecting sorrow and the darkness that covered the earth.

Br. Magdala Maria and Br Yousef Marie
erecting the Tenth Station to its place.

Domum tuam decet sanctitudo Domine in longitudine dierum.
Holiness becometh thy house, O Lord, unto length of days.
Psalms 92:5

Domine dilexi decorem domus tuae et locum habitationis gloriae tuae.
I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house;
and the place where thy glory dwelleth.
Psalms 25:8

A House of Prayer! I can clearly see the Tenth (X) Station and these are the very same pictures as the Stations of the Cross in St Patrick's Church, Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia. So beautiful and touching. How lovely the star-spangled ceiling, also!

As a result, I made the Stations of the Cross at St Patrick's on the First Friday of December in union with those doing so in this chapel.

If I could erect a chapel some day, this would be a guide on how to do it.
