We hit this spot on the Rome pilgrimage — the “Holy Stairs” that, according to tradition, Jesus climbed when he was brought before Pontius Pilate. They are among the relics that St. Helena, the mother of Constantine, allegedly brought back from the Holy Land. We gave pilgrims the option of ascending on their knees. We distributed special prayers for each step. Here’s another report.

Your knees will feel really good when you’re done with this devotion. But not during.

A good piece of religious art would be a picture of St. Helena smacking Emp. Constantine across the face Moe Howard-style when he refused to get baptized.
