An anointed place

The memory walk known as the "Stations of the Cross" concludes inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Here, according to tradition, Jesus was taken from the cross and buried. Station Thirteen, the "Stone of Unction," is tied to the memory of the place where Jesus' body was prepared for the tomb. Christian pilgrims come here, not just on Easter, but on everyday of the year to to see, touch, and weep at the stone.
