To commemorate Good Friday, the Catholic community in Paris perform the "Way of the Cross" ritual, which recounts Christ's passion, around the Notre Dame Cathedral, after a fire ravaged the famed gothic structure earlier this week.

The Way of the Cross refers to a series of images depicting Jesus on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers.

Often, a series of 14 images are arranged in a numbered order along a path and people go from image to image, in order, stopping at each station to say a prayer.
