The 1st Station:
Pilate was furious at their stubborness. His soldiers had placed
a crown of thorns on the victim's head and put on his shoulder a purple robe.
Well, he did not have the figure of a king anyway and no matter how much those
underneath had been screaming he still could not find a reason
to crucify this man.
Dear Jesus, what did you feel during these terrible moments? How could
you ignore the venom that was spit in your face? How could you remain silent?
Why didn't you show them again your powers? In this courtyard I can feel your
downcast eyes praying the Father for the sins of many, including mine. Yes,
dear Jesus, I can see your pain in being treated like a traitor, like a villain
when all you did was preach and practice Love!
The courtyard of the el-Omariye college.
