The Fourteenth Station

Jesus Is Laid In The Sepulchre

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world


Scriptures tell us that Joseph of Arimethea, a member of the Council who had not consented to Jesus’ condemnation, went and asked for the body of Jesus. What care he took as he  wrapped the body of Jesus in linens and placed it in a rock-hewn tomb that had not yet been used. His reverence for the Body of Christ can inspire us to similar faithfulness each time we receive Our Lord in Holy Communion.

As followers of Christ left the tomb and went home to observe the Sabbath, they mourned, but waited in hope. We too wait with hopeful expectation for Christ’s Resurrection and the many gifts He bestows upon our lives.

Lord, increase my hope

 

I love you, Jesus, my love above all things,
And I repent with my whole heart of having offended you.
Never permit me to separate myself from you again,
Grant that I may love you always, and then do with me what you will
