Station Eight – Via Dolorosa - Jesus and the Women of Jerusalem

According to tradition, Jesus encountered the women of Jerusalem mourning over him.

He turned to them and said: “Daughters of Jerusalem, Weep not over me, but for yourselves weep and for your children” (Luke 23:28). 

The site of this event is identified as the eastern part of Hanaka St. 

The station is marked by a round stone embedded in the wall bearing the inscription: “Jesus Christ conquers”(IC XC NIKA).

The eighth station of the cross is located near the Greek Orthodox Monastery of Saint Charalambos and on its outer wall carved a small cross.
