Tenth Station of the Cross.........April 7

Jesus is Stripped of His Garments
What was left? His honor was shattered in the courtyard by the soldiers' taunts;
His strength was left behind in every step on the death-march.
Only His sense of modesty remained,
and now, that too, is torn away with His clothing.
He suffered this shame and disgrace to atone for the sins of immodesty and impurity.
Lord, give me the grace to keep my soul pure and free from the taint of impurity and vice.
