The First Station - Jesus is Condemned
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Christ Speaks: I am in Pilate's hands now. I know my Father's will. But it is Pilate's unjust hands that will condemn me. He is the lawful governor of the land and right now he has power over me. I will obey. If I can bow to Pilate's rule because it is my Father's will can you run away from those whom I place over you?
We Reply: Loving Jesus, being obedient has cost you your life. For us it costs an act of will, no more and how hard is it for us to be faithful. We pray this day that you will remove the blinders from our eyes that we may see that it is you whom we are faithful to in all who govern us. Loving Jesus, it is you!
