"One of my favorite Lenten devotions observed at many Episcopal and Roman Catholic churches is the Stations of the Cross ...
"In this service, there is a procession of the congregation (if small enough), brief prayers and short hymns offered at 14 artistic depictions (paintings or sculptures) of the Passion, beginning with Jesus being condemned to death and ending with his body being placed in the tomb. It is a moving opportunity to commemorate and contemplate the suffering and death of Jesus on our behalf.
"The practice of this devotion began in the fourth century, when pilgrims to Jerusalem followed the Way of the Cross, the route that Jesus took in carrying his cross from Pilates judgment seat to Golgotha. Today, that route in Jerusalem is called in Latin the 'Via Dolorosa,' the Way of Sorrows."

Jesus himself said to remember his death, it was by means of the bread and wine at his last meal, which represent his body and blood, and is the only way anyone can be forgiven for their sins. That new covenant is not applicable to people who invent their own religions that claim to be Christian or teach that your sins are automatically forgiven by Jesus' death, that is a lie.

God's grace or undeserved kindness is available to all mankind, and so is forgiveness for our sins, these blessings are not automatically given to anyone, you must qualify for Almighty God Jehovah's blessings, and you will never receive them unless you ask for Jehovah's holy spirit to help you live by the spirit as a true Christian Jehovah's witness, as Jesus was.
