Representing the Passion of the Lord through arts and crafts

It took more than four months and an area of 322 square feet to finish this artistic representation of the Lord's Passion. Now, Rome's Our Lady of Valme parish is welcoming everyone to stop by see.

"Given the success and popularity of our Nativity Scenes in Christmas, we said, 'Why not do the same with the Passion?'�

It includes all the key moments of Jesus' Passion and it even has a few special effects: From an earthquake in the city of Jerusalem to the removal of a stone that covers His tomb.

"It's divided into different areas. The first one is the Garden of Olive Trees. Then, the area of 

Sanhedrin, where Jesus is kept prisoner. After that we have the residence of the Roman emperor.  Then we have the site of the Passion and from there we move onto the Resurrection grotto.â? 

The parish priest developed the idea and asked his parishioners to start taking action. 

It's not very common for parishes to have these type of visual representations, but this parish wanted to make a point to keep the tradition alive.
