Attending the School of the Cross
“If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny himself.” (Mt. 16:24)
Jesus is in agony in the garden of Gethsemane.
Let us ponder this mystery to learn what must change in our lives to conform ourselves to Jesus.
Jesus is scourged.
In this mystery we enter into the physical suffering of Jesus. Unite your sufferings with His.
Jesus is crowned with thorns.
As we ponder the humiliations that Jesus underwent in loving silence, let us look at the sin of pride in our lives and express our desire to enter His silence, united in love.
Jesus carries the Cross to Calvary.
Jesus freely embraced the weight of the Cross. What cross is He inviting us to freely embrace that we resist?
Jesus dies on the Cross
Death was the price that Jesus paid for our salvation. Pray for an expanded desire to participate in his redemptive work.
