The First Station ~ Jesus is condemned to death
"We adore you, O Christ and we praise you. Because by your holy cross You have redeemed the world."
They bound Jesus and led him away to be handed over to the procurator Pilate. Then Judas who had handed him over, seeing that Jesus had been condemned, began to regret his action deeply. He took the thirty pieces of silver back to the chief priests and elders and said "I did wrong to deliver up an innocent man." They retorted, "What is that to us? It is your affair!" So Judas flung the money into the temple and left. He went off and hanged himself. Jesus was arraigned before the procurator who questioned him: "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus responded, "As you say."
My loving Jesus, it was my sins, not Pilate, that condemned You to die. Grant that I may detest them with all my heart, and by the merits of this sorrowful journey obtain Your mercy and pardon to assist my soul on its journey towards eternity.
Glory Be to the Father....
