These are life-sized statues made of Bedford Stone and each scene is set in a fieldstone grotto. It took the artist fourteen years to complete the stations, finishing in 1928. This means that our grandparents’ honeymoon visit in 1919 occurred five years into this 14-year effort. At that time, they could only imagine how grand the finished project would be. And the beautiful basilica that now stands atop Holy Hill hadn’t been commissioned yet, so they would have visited the second shrine church, which no doubt seemed glorious to them.
