Stations of the Cross, which allow the devout to make a spiritual pilgrimage and contemplation of the Passion of Christ, can be found throughout the world. During the Triduum, it seems fitting to highlight the artwork of Sister Anne Pierre Limoges depicting the fourteen stations. These beautiful, yet simple, pieces are rendered in a minimalistic line art style in ink on artist board.Stations of the Cross by Kim Westerman
