Watch the Powerful Easter Ritual Performed by Christians Each Year in the Streets of New York City

The "living stations of the cross" drew a number of Christians on Friday, and also appeared to surprise tourists.

Each year a group of Christians from an organization called Mission Youth reenact the moments before the crucifixion of Christ in the streets of Lower Manhattan.

The dramatic ritual, which included an actor playing Jesus, as well as Roman soldiers and other characters from the biblical story, drew a number of Christians on Friday, and also appeared to surprise tourists and New Yorkers hanging out in local restaurants and bars.
