Station 10

Station 10: Jesus is Stripped of His Garments

Scripture Passage

They gave Jesus wine to drink mixed with gall; but when he had tasted it, he would not drink. Then after they had crucified him they divided his clothes, casting lots to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet, “They divided my clothes among them, and upon my garments they cast lots.” (Mt 27: 34-35)

Meditation from Fr. Jason Smith, LC

We adore you, O Christ, and praise you, for by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.

In this Station, we contemplate the face of Jesus, who is the Word made Flesh. That Christ would be stripped down to only the flesh, in utter humiliation, shows how profoundly God has united himself to us in suffering. Jesus, our king, would ascend to the throne of the cross wearing nothing but his wounds and a crown of thorns.
