My understanding is that a homily is required at all Masses on Sundays and Holy Days and is “strongly recommended” at weekday Masses “if there is a sufficient congregation, . . . especially during the time of Advent and Lent or on the occasion of some feast day or a sorrowful event.” See Canon 767, §§1 and 3.

The Stations of the Cross came from workshops in Munich (Mayersche Hofkunstanstalt )after the First World War and were a memorial to parishioners who died during that conflict. They are,perhaps somewhat unusually,placed side by side along the wall of the Lady aisle.
They do not,however, impede devotion for those who wish to make the Way of the Cross.It simply means you do not have to walk so far from one Station to the next.
