Brief Description of Subject: From the Guide to the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Copyright 1958, Archdiocese of Detroit.
At the left Simon of Cyrene assists Christ in carrying the heavy cross; in the next Christ appears alone, bent over with the weight of it.  Mary and St. John are seen at the right, heartsick with grief and sorrow.  The last panel shows the two thieves who were crucified on either side of the Redeemer.  They are leading the way to Calvary, prodded on by a soldier on horseback.

Inscriptions: Weep not for me but for yourselves.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact donald20@msu.edu
