The Way of the Cross in Jerusalem, the "city of our God", "the city of
the great King", "the city of Jesus Christ", is a unique experience. It leads
you in the footseps of Jesus up to Calvary. It makes you feel the presence of
those dramatic moments in the life of this city.
Dear Jesus, how many times you came into this city of yours! How many times
you celebrated with your people in your temple! How many times you saw
how the Law and the Prophets had been transformed into a yoke on the people's
shoulder. How many times, sitting in the Temple's spaces you must have felt
insulted by the way your people offered their prayers and their sacrifices. I
can hear you muttering the words of the Prophet: "The multitude of your
sacrifices-- what are they to me? I have more than enough of burnt offerings,
of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of
bulls and lambs and goats". (Is 1,11). Teach me Lord to love you with my heart
and not with my words!
