WAY OF THE CROSS- meditation for consecrated virgins

FIRST STATION : Jesus is condemned to death

We adore You O Christ  and we Praise You
 R : Because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world

Jesus Is Condemned to Death

55 Now the chief priests and the whole Council tried to find some evidence against Jesus so that they might put him to death, but they were unable to find any.
56 Even though many came up to speak falsely against him, their evidence did not agree.
57 At last some stood up and gave this false witness:
58 "We heard him say: 'I will destroy this Temple made by hands and in three days I will build another not made by human hands."
59 But even so their evidence did not agree.
60 The High Priest then stood up in the midst of them and asked Jesus, "Have you no answer at all? What of this evidence against you?"
61 But Jesus was silent and made no reply.
The High Priest put a second question to him, "Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?"
62 Then Jesus answered, "I am, and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Most Powerful and coming with the clouds of heaven around him."
63 The High Priest tore his clothes to show his horror and said, "What more evidence do we need?
64 You have just heard his blasphemous words. What is your decision?" And they all condemned Jesus saying, "He must die."  [Mk 14:55-64]

Mary, the Mother of Jesus, knew  The Way God had traveled from Heaven to Earth to reach us. The only begotten Son of God  took flesh in her womb. The Divine was wedded to the human.

6 Though being divine in nature,
he did not claim in fact equality with God,
7 but emptied himself,
taking on the nature of a servant, made in human likeness,
and in his appearance found as a man.
[Philippians 2:6-7]

Now it was time for Humanity to travel  on the Way of the Cross of Calvary with Jesus and Mary, following him, to reach God.

Prayer :  O God, you loved us so much that your restless heart sent your only Son to become the Son of Mary. Previously the Temple building was your abode. Mary’s  body became a new Temple built not by human hands but by your Word made flesh in her  heart and womb through the power of the Holy Spirit. After the birth of Jesus, Mary  continued to carry him in her heart as she pondered upon your loving plan to reconcile all humanity once again with yourself through Jesus Christ and became your collaborator in the Mystery of our redemption.

We pray that every consecrated virgin, like Mary, should receive your Word to dwell in her heart forever, praying and working for the reconciliation of all humanity with you  in Christ, thus bringing Earth closer to Heaven in an eschatological tension.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be…………
