The Fourteenth Station

Jesus Is Placed in the Tomb

“Taking the body, Joseph wrapped it in clean linen and laid it in his new tomb that he had hewn in the rock. Then he rolled a huge stone across the en--trance to the tomb and departed.”
(Matthew 27:59-60)

This station isn’t included in the movie — unless the blackout before the Easter scene counts. But it’s a special time in the Church. It’s Holy Saturday. The King, at long last, is resting, and we’re awaiting the Resurrection. It’s analogous to the times we live in. Christ has ascended, but he will return one day, in glory. Am I ready?

Pray this prayer from your heart: Lord Jesus, in the trials of our lives, we are strengthened — and kept alert — by the knowledge that you will return one day. Help us to watch and pray as we await you. Amen.

Pray one of each prayer: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
