The Sixth Station: The Students’ Perspective
April 22, 2011 Comments Off on The Sixth Station: The Students’ Perspective
Rev. Mary Foulke worked with students from St. Luke’s School to create a Stations of the Cross chapel service. We’d like to share their reflection about the ways crucifixion continues this afternoon:
When they came to the place which is called The Skull, there they crucified him; and with him they crucified two criminals, one on the right, the other on the left, and Jesus between them.
We know that people continue to be crucified; we see it around us… People who are killed for no reason, people who die in war, civilians dying in Libya, people who are given the death penalty, people who are killed for who they are, people who are killed because of their religion, people who are killed because of natural disasters, people who are in gangs.
