Easter - Way of the Cross - Themed Postage Stamps Released by Croatia

Croatia Post has issued 14 commemorative postage stamps with the theme Easter - Way of the Cross. Each stamp features one of the fourteen Stations of the Cross.

These postage stamps honor the passion of Jesus Christ - the condemnation to death and the taking to the grave. This devotion stems from Jerusalem, when the faithful during the pilgrimage visited sites of Jesus' Passion. The 17th Century cross motives have become an integral part of the church interior, and each of the stations show a separate picture or statue.
