#40 Lent Pilgrimage, Golgotha

May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. ~Galatians 6:14

We are in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which is built over the place where Jesus died. We have the opportunity to stoop over, crawl beneath an altar, and reach through a hole and touch the bedrock of Golgotha. I know it is just a rock. I know it is grimy from other people’s fingers. But when I touch it, I am pierced with the knowledge that a sinless Jesus suffered for the love of us pilgrims with our grimy hands and besmirched hearts.

How might you place yourself at the foot of the cross this Holy Saturday?

Prayer: Jesus, Lamb of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
