It’s a special night event on Gozo. We walked up the Ta Ghammar Hill following the Stations of the Cross until we reached an ancient amphitheater - a place of worship. The Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows or the Via Crucis, refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. The stations grew out of imitations of the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, which is a traditional processional route symbolizing the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The objective of the stations is to help the Christian faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ. It has become one of the most popular devotions and the stations can be found in many Western Christian churches, including Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, and Roman Catholic. Walking along the amphitheater at the top of Ta Ghammar Hill at the night is a special experience, not made for everyone and should only be done with a flashlight. Here also occasional sermons are held. The amphitheater is mostly used for mass religious events especially at Holy week and Easter.
