The Via Dolorosa Experience

The Via Dolorosa Experience is a new movie that follows the Franciscan friars and other Christians (from all over the world) on their weekly Friday walk and prayer along the Via Dolorosa, the Way of the Cross, in Jerusalem.

From the about page:

…. In recent years, we have met with thousands of pilgrims who flock to Jerusalem from every corner of the world with one goal – to follow the footsteps of Jesus here and to be closer to God. The highlight of their visit is participation in the Franciscan weekly Friday walk and prayer on the Way of the Cross, along the Via Dolorosa.

Since the inception of, we have received very strong and emotional emails from our followers all over the world, telling us how each of our videos took them on a virtual and spiritual tour to the places where Jesus actually walked and preached the words of God. These feedbacks were the seeds for the idea of creating The Via Dolorosa Experience DVD. We want to convey this spiritual experience of walking and praying the Way of the Cross along the Via Dolorosa here in Jerusalem to people anywhere in the world. To those are fortunate already to have been in Jerusalem, we offer to relive this experience…

Here’s the trailer:
