The Way of the Cross and Resurrection
A Guided Meditation
Jesus is Condemned
1 – Jesus is condemned  

      Have I ever been condemned, treated unfairly, or been blamed? 

      Have my words been used through gossip to condemn or blame others? 

      Alone, abandoned and betrayed, do I strike out in anger and hold grudges? 

      Am I willing to stand defenseless, unwilling to harm, and able to forgive? 

      Help me to stand in calmness and patience because my faith is so strong I know the final outcome.

Let us pray:

Lord, thank you for blessing me with your amazing grace and love, and offering me access to deep wisdom and surprising inner strength. You present me with self-control and fearlessness. Here I am Lord, welcoming, embracing and embodying your gifts, filled with profound gratitude.
