Saturday Night April 11 Devotional

THIRTEENTH STATION

The body of Jesus is placed in the arms of his mother

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

Reflect on this image before and after the following reading.



All you who pass by, look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow. My eyes are spent with weeping; my soul is in tumult; my heart is poured out in grief because of the destruction of . . . my people. Call me no longer Naomi (which means Pleasant), call me Mara (which means Bitter), for the Almighty has dealt bitterly with me. [Lamentations 1:12; 2:11 RSV; Ruth 1:20]

Her tears run down her cheeks: And she has no one to comfort her. [see Lamentations 1:2]

Lord Jesus Christ, by your death you took away the sting of death: Grant to us your servants so to follow in faith where you have led the way, that we may at length fall asleep peacefully in you and wake up in your likeness; for your tender mercies’ sake. Amen.

FOURTEENTH STATION

Jesus is laid in the tomb

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

Reflect on this image before and after the following reading.



When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus; then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. So Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock. He then rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb and went away. [Matthew 27:57-60]

You will not abandon me to the grave: Nor let your holy One see corruption. [Psalm 16:10]

Grant, O Lord, that as we are baptized into the death of your blessed Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, so by continual crucifying our degrading passions we may be buried with him; and through the grave and gate of death, we may pass to our joyful resurrection; for his merits, who died, and was buried, and rose again for us, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
