As one ascends the many steps to the top of the Cabrini Shrine's Stairway of Prayer, you will encounter WM90Q0, a Stations of the Cross made of mosaic pictures on red wooden crosses.
However, as you go higher, another set of Stations is presented in bas relief monuments. These stations are probably newer since they were not mentioned by the poster of WM90Q0 and because they are not mentioned on the Shrine's website (visit link
At the top of the 373 step climb is a 22 foot statue of Jesus looking out over the valley. There is also a heart-shaped rock placement made by Mother Cabrini. Mother Cabrini had purchased land here in 1909 and organized an orphanage. In 1912, in response to complaints from her fellow sisters, she told them that a spring could be found by moving a nearby rock. That spring still operates today...and pilgrims to the site are offered paper cups to take a sip from the now modern faucets.
There is no information at the site or on the Shrine's website about the bas relief Stations or the artist or date.
