Stations of the Cross

Stations in The Abbey (by Imogen Stuart

The “stations” have been especially commissioned for Ballintubber Abbey, Ireland.  The artist, Imogen Stuart, has captured in these stations the spiritual heritage reflected in XIII century Celtic Crosses.  The simplicity of compositions and delicacy of colours render both the sorrow and serenity of the characters on their way to Calvary.  Art and faith combine together to transform silent suffering into a prayer of adoration and praise.

The natural stones and the local stories surrounding each station reflect the themes of each particular station. e.g. Faith, Perseverance, Hope, Temptation & Sacrificial Love.
