Jesus Is Stripped of His Clothes
L: We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Bow)
All: By your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
L: When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his clothes and divided them into four parts, one for each soldier. They also took his tunic; now the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from the top. So they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see who will get it.” (John 19:23-24a)
(Kneel/sit and pause for reflection)
L: All of you must clothe yourselves with humility:
All: In your dealings with one another, for “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.
(1 Peter 5:5b-7,10)
L: Let us pray. Lord God, your Son endured humiliations and indignities beyond compare, yet without complaint. Keep us humble in our work and daily lives with a willingness to put others before ourselves as Jesus put us before himself; through Christ our Lord.
(Stand and move to the next station, singing:)
Pierced the hands that blessed and cured us;
Pierced the feet that walked to free us,
Walked the hill of Calvary.
