Old Portable Stations of the Cross With Sliding Scenes

Old Portable Stations of the Cross With Sliding Scenes

Here was another summer find:

Whenever I’m home in Nashville I frequent Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the Traditional Latin Mass. This church is the second oldest standing Catholic one in the diocese; it was built in 1859. So, you know its got some cool Catholic stuff hanging around from over the years. The portable stations of the cross pictured below was one of them.

You read that right. A portable Stations of the Cross. You see the little screen in the middle? If you turn a little dial attached to the right (where my hand is at in the pic) then a different scene from Our Lord’s Passion shows. Crazy cool. And since every station is a slide all combined in this one piece and the whole thing can be moved from place to place as opposed to the normal stations attached to wall of a church, you can consider it is a portable set of the stations. Still, this bad boy would most likely be a fixture on a mantle or cabinet in a home or chapel.

For those visitors of my blog who are not familiar with the Stations of the Cross devotion, here is some info on it.
