In this visit along the blog crawl we are focusing on the Second Sorrowful Mystery: The scourging at the pillar.
Watch this newly released clip on the Scourging at the Pillar
“Then Pilate took Jesus and scourged him. And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and arrayed him in a purple robe; they came up to him, saying, ‘Hail, King of the Jews!’ and struck him with their hands” (Jn 19:1-3).
“Jesus’ sufferings took their historical, concrete form from the fact that he was ‘rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes’ (Mk 8:31 ), who ‘handed him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified’ (Mt 20:19)” (CCC, 572).
Our Father, 10 Hail Marys (contemplating the mystery), Glory be to the Father.
