For today’s Online Station of the Cross, we are invited to imagine what it would be like to suffer through crucifixion. Slowly browse through these photos as you consider Jesus’ experience.
When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23: 33-34)
Father, your Son was put on display and shamed by those he came to save. Yet, he still chose to forgive those same people. Help me to become the kind of person who chooses forgiveness.
