Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 20.2 x 23 cm ( 8 x 9 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Psalms, lxxxix: 45.)--'The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him with shame.' The Greek church, or the Eastern church, has placed within the Garden of Gethsemane little stations which represent the incidents of the crucifixion. Poor pilgrims from all parts of the world upon visiting Jerusalem make the rounds of these stations of the Cross, praying at each. One cannot stand in the Garden of Gethsemane during the Greek Easter week without having a new apprehension of the hold the Lord Jesus Christ has upon the hearts of the human race. To see people kissing the wood of which the stations representing the incidents of crucifixion are built; to see them kissing the rocks made dear to their hearts because lying upon the ground over which the Lord Jesus Christ walked, is sufficient to bring tears to the eyes of the hardest heart."
A group of men and women stand among the Stations of the Cross in the Garden of Gethsemane; in the background is the Golden Gate
