The fifteenth station is about the Resurrection of Christ. In the above message Jesus asked us to imitate Him in the 14 stations, logically omitting the fifteenth one because none of us can resurrect from physical death, but only Him, the Christ Redeemer.

The Resurrection of everybody, namely the Last Judgment, will take place during the Second Coming of Christ.

The Via Crucis, or Way of the Cross, was born from the desire to spiritually retrace with Jesus the way that led Him from Pilate's praetorium to the tomb. The "14 Stations" are 14 episodes taken from the Gospel. They are commented by us with the quotation of biblical texts, personal meditation and grateful love for Jesus.

Before each station it is recited:

- We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.

- Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

After each station:

- 1 Pater, 1 Ave 1, 1 Glory.

- Holy Mother, deh! Please let the wounds of the Lord be impressed in my heart.
