The Crucifixion
So Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns
and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Here is
the man!” When the chief priests and the police
saw Him, they shouted, “Crucify him! Crucify
him!”
Around this time in the Church year, we
celebrate the suffering and death of Jesus
on Palm Sunday and Good Friday. It is important, at least once a year, to meditate on
this true story. It is an amazing story of
courage and great love on the part of Jesus,
of mob anger and violence, and of a lack of
courage by Pilate. It is a major part of our
story as Christians. Sit quietly and read the
whole thing as though you have never
heard it before. Feel the fear of the disciples, the calmness and commitment of Jesus, the anger of the crowd, and Pilate’s
wavering over what to do with Jesus.
Let us pray
Jesus, man of fortitude and God of love, teach me
to be ever consistent in my beliefs and convictions.
Amen
