Cool Cemetery stuff

If you don't care about cemeteries & Christian stuff, you probably don't want to read any further.

I went to try out my new camera and one of the cemeteries I went to (I'm weird - I love cemeteries - the history & art are amazing!) is Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton Twp., MI. It just happens to be where my aunt & uncle are buried, and it was a crazy chance that I found them! It's been 9 years and the darn place has 300 acres!  I parked on the side of the road & got out to look closer at some neat stones.  On the way back to the car, I glanced down and there they were!

Anywhoooooo, they have one "garden" where they have the 14 Stations of the Cross. I'm actually not a churchy-church person - we haven't attended services in over 2 years, even tho we enjoyed them. I was raised half-assed Catholic, but didn't get baptized until 2010. So I never went to Sunday School or had first communion or anything. So I had to look this up.   

According to the cemetery website (where I learned what these were called) - these are "hero" sized - which means larger than real life.  I took each of these pics from my car window.  And thanks to for more info.

The detail and emotion is beautiful!

Station 1 - Jesus is condemned to death

Station 2 - Jesus carries the cross

Station 3 - Jesus falls the first time

Station 4 - Jesus meets his mother

Station 5 - Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry his cross

Station 6 - Veronica wipes the face of Jesus

Station 7 - Jesus falls the second time

Station 8 - Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

Station 9 - Jesus falls a third time

Station 10 - Jesus' clothes are taken away

Station 11 - Jesus is nailed to the cross

Station 12 - Jesus dies on the cross

Station 13 - The body of Jesus to taken down from the cross

Station 14 - Jesus is laid in the tomb

There was no real reason for this post, other to share this amazing scene.  


  1. That is amazing! I've never seen it before. I also love cemeteries!! I don't feel so weird about it knowing I'm not the only one.

    1. They are such peaceful places and usually full of beautiful stones & buildings. My family just humors me.


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
