My main post for today is not one of the stations, but just a general view as you walk in the front door of what the Church of the Holy Sepulchre looks like inside. The church or basillica is huge and is also a combination of a number of denominations' work. This part is clearly Greek Orthodox. Sorry for the distortion in the main picture, not even ShiftN could fix it.
Station 11 is just inside the church wall from the chapel, that is built on station 10. See previous posting. Station 12 is a few yards away, in the form of an altar. I couldn't get good pictures of stations 11 and 12, so I am using someone else's picture. Together, the pictures in this posting should provide an idea of the grandness of the interior.

Station 12: Jesus dies on the cross
A silver disk with a central hole, underneath the altar, marks the spot where the Cross stood, and pilgrims kneel and kiss the spot, as seen below. The silver icons of Virgin Mary and St John are on Jesus side.
