Pieta

On your right, at the junction of the entrance and exit roads stands the Cross, the greatest sign of Christianity. At its foot is the Pieta - a representation of the Virgin Mary mourning over the dead body of Jesus.

O Jesus,
forsaken today,
despised as never before.
O Lamb of God,
so cruelly beaten,
mercifully look upon us.
Strengthen those
who will love you.
Let them remain faithful
and be prepared
to suffer for you,
standing at
Your side.
