Hebrews 4: 15-16 NRSV
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
We adore you O ‘Christ and we bless you because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world.
Consider that Christ is in such a state that He cannot move. He is being treated like an animal. They prod and push Him with spears to get him to move ahead. His only option is to surrender to the situation. He is able only to wish for strength to carry on.
O’Lord in those times when we are crushed, lost and in great pain, may we be willing to surrender every piece of ourselves to whatever you may ask of us. Bless our brokeness, O’Lord. Amen.
