Crucifixion: Jesus Is Nailed to the Cross

The Eleventh Station of the Cross

Reflection: Crucifixion, Jesus is nailed to the cross. Jesus how truly helpless you are at this moment and we can only imagine the torment and suffering you went through. Each time the hammer came down to nail you to the cross we are reminded of our sinfulness. Jesus, how easy it is for us to turn our sight away from this image. But we are the ones who do this to you. We lower our heads in remorse for the many times we followed our own will and didn't bother to follow you out of ours own selfish desires. And here you lay upon the cross undergoing excruciating pain for those who went before us to let us know how far you would go for us to set us free. Not only that you showed us what it means to follow the Will of God until the end. Taking our cross as you did and seeing it through to the end, no matter what obstacles and trials we suffer you have done it first for us. We can do no less when it is done for you and with you.

Prayer: Please say an Our Father and Glory Be
