Saint James Stations of the Cross

The Way of the Cross  - The First Station

Jesus is condemned to death

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

We fill the shoes of Pilate so often, fearful of what people will say if we do not go along with the crowd.   And so, because we are too cowardly to stand up for what is right, we turn away from you, Jesus, the best friend we've got.   Give us the strength to do what is right, no matter what anybody thinks or says.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.
