The scene of the last 12 hours of Jesus’ suffering called ‘The Road to Calvary’ was staged on a 2500 square meter stage. The ‘Megadrama’ was staged last night from 7 to 8 in the yard of Erav St. Teresa in Kappally.
Submitted by former CLC employees. The scenes that happened include Judas betraying Jesus, who was praying in the garden of Gadsamen in front of the ship’s church, being caught by soldiers and taken to Pilate’s palace, being tried, beaten with whips, and finally sentenced to death, wearing a crown of thorns and carrying a heavy cross to Calvary, and being crucified between 2 thieves and buried in a tomb.
Pilate’s palace, the place where Jesus was scourged, the garden of Gadsaman, the town of Jerusalem, Gagulthamala and the costumes were made by the artists and painters of the parish. Cinematic lighting and sound systems enhanced the presentation.
