All 14 Stations of the Cross depicted on skateboards

John Paul II said that it's possible to be modern and profoundly loyal to Jesus Christ. These young Chileans put this thought into practice. They combined something as modern as skateboarding, with their faith. The result lòoks like this: the 14 Stations of the Cross painted on skateboards. Its creators called it Via Crucis SkateArt. The meditations for each station are the very ones Pope Francis prepared for the Way of the Cross at WYD 2013 in Rio de Janeiro. They came up with the idea after attending the event. The creators are 11 young Chileans from the city of Temuco. They say SkateArt is a reflection of their hopes and concerns. For eight weeks, the pieces will be on display across their city. Through Via Crucis SkateArt, they found a way to convey their message for Holy Week. ; AC/RCA FDSCrew FA -PR Up: KLH
