30 Fifth Station of the Cross on Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, Israel

About 80 feet away, you will see a small sign reading Simoni Cyrenaeo Crux Imponitur. This is Latin for Simon, the cross is laid. These words represent where the Romans picked Simon the Cyrenian from the crowd and forced him to bear the cross for the exhausted Jesus. The fifth Station of the Cross is outside of the Franciscan Chapel of Simon of Cyrene. The popular pilgrimage ritual is to place your hand into the imprint where Jesus stabilized himself against the wall.
