Jesus is nailed to the cross

Jesus is nailed to the cross

We adore you O Christ and praise you
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world

He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearer is silent, so he did not open his mouth.

Meditation

Death by crucifixion is particularly horrible. A quick search on the internet and you will find more medical details than you need to know.
We can see here the real distress of Jesus' followers and the unconcern of those who are worrying more about the words to be put on the cross. Are we to worry more about the living Lord or on correct titles?


O Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us(x3)

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est
(Where charity and love are, God is there)
