April 9-16 Stations of the Cross

This Saturday Emmaus will be presenting a walk through the stations of the cross. If you have ever walked the stations or studied them I would like to hear about your experience and insight.

1. Jesus Condemned
Pilate brought Jesus outside and said to the people, "Look at your king!"
At this they shouted, "Away with him! Crucify him!"
Then Pilate handed Jesus over to be crucified.

2. Jesus Carries his Cross
Jesus was led away, and carrying the Cross by himself,went out to what is called the Place of the Skull, Golgotha.

3. Jesus Falls
Jesus emptied himself,and took the form of a slave,being born in the likeness of men. He humbled himself,to death and a Cross.

4. Jesus meets his mother
Simeon said to Mary his mother: "This child is destined to be the downfall and the rise of many in Israel, a sign that will be opposed. And you yourself shall be pierced with a sword, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be laid bare."

5. Simeon Helps Carry the Cross
A man named Simon of Cyrene, was coming in from the fields, and they pressed him into service to carry the Cross.

6. Veronica Wipes Jesus Face
He who welcomes you welcomes me; and he who welcomes me, welcomes him who sent me. And I promise that whoever gives a cup of cold water will not want for a reward.

7. Jesus Falls a Second Time
But I am a worm and no man; the scorn of all, despised by the people. All who see me scoff at me.

8. Jesus meets the Women
A great crowd of people followed him, including women who beat their breasts and lamented over him.

9. Jesus falls a Third Time
I am like water poured out;all my bones are racked.You have brought me down to the dust of death

10. Jesus Stripped
They stripped off his clothes and began to mock him saying: "All hail, king of the Jews!"

11. Jesus Nailed to the Cross
After carrying his Cross, Jesus came to thePlace of the Skull (in Hebrew, Golgotha).There they crucified him and two others with him.

12. Jesus Dies
Jesus said, "I thirst!"and they gave him wine.
"It is finished"!" he cried,and gave up his spirit.

13. Jesus is taken down from the cross
Mary’s 33-year-old son, the Messiah,
Crusted with blood, naked,
And dead is beyond her help,
She, too, is helpless

14. Jesus is Buried
Joseph of Arimethea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus, and wrapped it in perfumed oils. Then he buried Jesus in a tomb close at hand.
