THE FOURTH STATION: The Scourging and Crowning with thorns

V/. We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
R/. Because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

READINGS: John 19:1-3

Then Pilate took Jesus and had him scourged.  

And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns and placed it on his head, and clothed him in a purple cloak, and they came to him and said, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 

And they struck him repeatedly.  

REFLECTIONS: "The Lord calls you. The Lord seeks you out, the Lord awaits you. The Lord does not proselytize. He gives love, and that love seek you out. It waits for you, who doesn't believe, or who feels distant at the moment. And that is the God's love.” (Pope Francis)

*Moment of Silence

Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory be...
