The Eleventh Station: Jesus is Nailed to the Cross

At that moment, Jesus was between heaven and earth, but closer to earth, because it was the ultimate moment of the Incarnation. The Incarnation was for this very Sacrifice, in order to be the living Cross, simultaneously the Priest, the Victim and the Altar, and to be the martyr of martyrs, the poorest of the poor: The poor you will always have with you, but me you shall not always have. This is how Jesus had announced at Bethany His great poverty and self-effacement as the Crucified One.

Let us ask Mary, her who sees all in the light of the Holy Spirit, to instill in us the love of Christ crucified, and to love, as she loved them, the wounds of His hands and His feet; to love the One who accepted to be the One poorer than all, one before whom people hide their face because it is so bruised and despised.
