My pastoral group is responsible to put together the station depicting the crucifixion of Jesus. We decided that we would use symbols and images to highlight the event. As a result, the students put together a wooden cross on the floor, with a hammer and several nails being displayed next to it.
With the help of a couple of friends holding the nail and the hammer, a person was able to lie down and experience what it meant to be nailed to the cross.
To help us in our reflection of and meditation on the crucifixion of Jesus, we played the song by Ray Boltz, Feel The Nails. This is a very powerful and moving song. Listen to it, and allow the song to challenge us to love our Lord deeper and to have the courage to follow him in his steps. So come and see, feel, experience, and reflect on the way of our Lord to the Cross.
Lord, may we have this desire to follow after you closely, this courage to stand firm in our devotion to you, and this commitment to remain faithful to you, always. Amen.
