Via Crucis (1)

Station 1: Jesus is Condemned to Death Pilate and Jesus…. And in the end, the one who lived dies forever and the one who died wins life for all.

Station 1: Jesus is Condemned to Death

Pilate and Jesus. Kingdoms in conflict. Face to face; toe to toe. The love of power assuming the upper hand against the power of love. Pilate fearfully wielding the power of death. Jesus confidently resonating the gift of life.

One will live and one will die. Evil lashing out at goodness, burning itself out upon unending love. And in the end, the one who lived dies forever and the one who died wins life for all. Such is the great reversal of love.

The accompanying images of the Stations of the Cross are from St. Anthony’s Catholic Church.
