What is the correct number of Stations of the Cross? I have attended a service at a Roman Catholic church that included a Fifteenth Station.

Stations of the Cross, also called Way of the Cross, is a series of fourteen pictures or carvings portraying events in the Passion of Christ.

The meaning of the word statio in Latin is "a place to stop or rest on a journey".

Isn't it interesting when you find English words with Latin roots?
