We are taking each day to be with Jesus this week leading up to Christ’s resurrection on Easter.
Settle and still yourself by whatever means you find effective to give your full attention to the stirrings within you from the presence of the Holy Spirit.
A few deep breaths to calm your body and soul may be helpful to prepare yourself.

This is our final day of Holy Week Meditations and it is the day we remember the death of Christ on the cross. Scripture tells us to take up our cross daily so it is not something we ever forget. The work on the cross is what calls us into an abundant life and connection with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
It is at the foot of the cross we sit today and enter the story along with the others that were actually present at that time and place.
Use your imagination, the one God has given you, to be there at the scene beyond what has been portrayed through the movies and paintings you have viewed.
As you read the following scriptures ask yourself these questions.
What are the surroundings like that you see there?
Where are you in the scene and who might you be?
What do you hear and what do you feel?
How do you respond?
In addition to today's meditation I have included the stations of the cross, a devotional from Soul Shepherding. If you have never gone through the stations before I would encourage you to choose one or all that take you deeper into the journey for Easter.
Read the introduction first to help you understand this tradition.
