Journey with Jesus: Trial and Carrying the Cross

TrialFirst Reading: Luke 23: 12-21

That day Herod and Pilate became friends–before this they had been enemies.  Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people, and said to them, “You brought me this man as one who was inciting the people to rebellion. I have examined him in your presence and have found no basis for your charges against him.  Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us; as you can see, he has done nothing to deserve death.   Therefore, I will punish him and then release him. ”  With one voice they cried out, “Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!” (Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.)  Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again.  But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

 Way of the Cross

Second Reading: Luke 23: 26-27

As they led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.   A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him.
