Carrying the Cross To Calvary (Golgotha)

“Then the soldiers took Jesus into the palace.  They stripped him and put a scarlet robe upon him, a crown of thorns they put on his head…And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him.”  Matthew 27:27-31

After the rigors of the trials by Herod and Pilate and the abuse by Pilate’s battalion, Jesus is exhausted and weak.  A man called Simon from Cyrene is commandeered to help carry the cross.

Veronica’s Veil

As Jesus struggles toward Golgotha, women mourn and lament Him.  Among them is a compassionate woman who pushes through the crowd as in a trance,  She comforts Jesus by wiping the sweat from his face with her veil.  She later discovers that Jesus has left his image on the veil. This is said to be the only authentic picture of the face of Jesus. The woman’s true name is not known; but over time she becomes Veronica, from “vera icon, true image,” and is canonized Saint Veronica by the Catholic Church.

The Crucifixion

…”They crucified him and divided his clothes among them…It was the third hour when they crucified him.  And the inscription of the charge against him read The King of the Jews.” Mark 15:33-41

Mary, his mother, her sister, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Susanna, Salome and the other Galilean women watch from a distance and pray.


NOTE:  The Audio Imagery includes time between thoughts for you to experience the impact of the Imagery.  These are marked in the narrative by (…)

Close your eyes and breathe out three times.  See, feel sense and know how “there is darkness over all the land when Jesus cries out, with a loud voice, ‘My God.  My God, why hast thou forsaken me?’ (…)  After a moment, He cries again with a loud voice saying, ‘Father into your hands I commit my spirit.’ (…)  Having said this he breathed his last breath.” Keeping your eyes closed, breathe out one time and wait  until the next exercise begins in ten seconds.  At that moment, an earthquake shakes the land, splitting rocks, opening tombs and raising saints who had fallen asleep.  The will of The Father has been fulfilled by The Son.  Breathe out one time and open your eyes. (Quotes from Matthew 27:45-56 and Luke 23:44-47)
