Overview
-

In July 2018 new Stations of the Cross by artist Ger Sweeney were installed in the Basilica at Knock Shrine, Ireland, just in time for the visit by Pope Francis. The Stations were executed on stretched raw linen and they run almost floor to ceiling in the Basilica, ensuring that all pilgrims have a good view of the Stations in order to facilitate prayer and the saying of the Rosary. This incredibly striking artwork is the inspiration behind this book commissioned by Knock Shrine, which includes images of the Stations and reflections written by 14 different guest writers.
