Rosary Reflections ~ The Carrying of the Cross

To read the introduction post that explains what I have used these images for, please click here.

The fourth sorrowful mystery, the Carrying of the Cross is a similar mystery to the luminous mystery, Proclamation of the Kingdom of the God. There are many scenes to ponder upon and so I've tried to choose images that reflect as many moments in the Via Dolorosa as possible.
