Jesus Is Laid In the Tomb

The Fourteenth Station of the Cross

Reflection: Jesus is laid in the tomb. It all seems so final now. You are no longer among us as a mere mortal in the flesh, blood, skin and bones. You are placed in a tomb as a final resting place to the life of witnessing for your Father's love for us. Many die and are placed away from us as you have been. Only thing different, you will be back to conquer the hardened hearts of the people. So many of us die, but many die in sin and will not find eternal rest. Why do we hold onto so much of this world when it is you that truly gives us life. You gave us your body and blood in this sacrifice and we have so many opportunities to be united to you, and partake of the banquet you left us to imitate. You are the Lamb that was sacrificed and by your blood you have washed us clean. We hope that in this day we will truly see how deeply you love us and how much you want us with you.

Prayer: Please say an Our Father and Glory Be
