 "He was insulted and did not retaliate with insults; when he suffered he made no threats.  Instead he entrusted himself to him who judges justly...   Through his wounds we have been healed"  (I Peter 2.23-24)

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.  Because by Your Holy Cross, You have brought new life to the world.

Christ's Life

Pilate's hands were washed clean, but the stain of sin remained.  All denied responsibility for putting an end to the life of the Son of Man.  He was sent to bring New Life but this threatened the powerful.  He preached salvation to the weak and powerless and was willing to die to self and for others.  But the power of Jesus was in his prayer of fidelity to His Father "Not My will but thine be done"
Our Lives

This is the Way of the Cross for those who wish to follow Jesus.  Our salvation lies in service, humility and gentleness, not in the hands of the powers of the World.  We need to remind ourselves constantly that to walk away from persons and community is to walk away from his love and forgiveness.  We need to teach our hearts to love as Jesus did.

My Prayer

Jesus, O Lord, through your death you brought new life in obedience to your Father.  I need to be moulded by your Word, so that I may grow in your "image and likeness".  Let me follow your ways in and through each member of my family and my community to the Kingdom of Your Father.
