It was a Friday when it all happened.
Before that, Judas had sold you with a kiss.
You told them that one of them would do that but they all denied it..
Just the way Peter denied knowing you three times before the rooster crowed.
They cruelly beat you..
They made a crown of thrones and made you wear it..
“Oh hail king of Jews” they mockingly said on their knees.
When they crucified you, they asked you to come down from the cross since you were the King of Jews.
In the sixth hour, darkness crept over the land till the ninth hour.
They left you up there bleeding, waiting for you to save yourself.
“Eloi Eloi, lama sabachthani?” My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me? You cried out..
They thought it was Elijah you called for,
“Let Elijah save him”, they said.
Bless the man who filled the sponge with vinegar and gave you to drink.
They watched you died slowly and painfully
Joseph brought your body down.
He wrapped you in a clean linen cloth
He laid you to rest in the tomb.
You went through this painful journey for our sins. And for that we are eternally grateful. We forever indebted to you...
