The Eleventh Station: Jesus is Nailed to the Cross
We adore you, O Christ and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross, you have saved the world.
The agony Jesus is in and the soldiers nail his hands and feet to the cross. The pain on his face. But still, he asks his Father in heaven to forgive the soldiers. Is there no end to this man’s compassion and love and forgiveness?
The horror of the day has finally begun to touch the crowd. The soldiers nail you to the cross. Yet in your unconditional compassion and forgiveness you ask for mercy on those who have put you through this ordeal.
Dear Jesus, help me to love and forgive my family and friends, even when they hurt me. Teach me not to bear grudges and have enemies, but to forgive and forget.
