Via Crucis (2)

Our backs straighten as Jesus’ back sags under the sharp unyielding weight of the lumber. This timber that is meant for death will soon become the new tree of life.

Station 2: Jesus Bears His Cross

Innocence accepts guilt. Goodness embraces evil. Love touchs contempt. Jesus shoulders the unbearable pain assigned for the worst of humanity. And in doing so, our cross becomes his cross. Our backs straighten as Jesus’ back sags under the sharp unyielding weight of the lumber. This timber, which is meant for death, will soon be shaped and crafted into the new tree of life.
