The Eleventh Station ~ Jesus is Nailed to the Cross



SO MUCH INGRATITUDE. God's hands of kindness and mercy have been opened to us, and we have nailed those hands to the cross. God has walked among us in love, and we have nailed those feet to the cross.

I must never be surprised by ingratitude Indeed, I mustn't even expect, anticipate or require the gratitude of others. From the start in Eden we are not very good at gratitude. Only God is sure to reward. 

And when we are surrounded by ingratitude and every good thing we do seems to go unnoticed or forgotten, we can trust that God knows and that is all that matters. And God will hold us up and perhaps even send us some human hand to reassure us of his presence and grateful love. Here, Jesus looks into our own space, expecting ingratitude. He understands our weakness. 

O Jesus, share life and love with me - your grace - so I can be patient  with everyone, especially myself.

Silence

Our Father Who Art in Heaven...
Hail Mary full of grace...
Glory be to the Father...
