These are my reflections on an ancient Christian devotion. The journey to Calvary is the journey we must all undertake. Even at the point of his own utmost suffering, Jesus called upon the women onlookers not to pity him. Instead, he said, ‘weep for yourselves and for your children’. In short, don’t let the piteous condition of others deflect you from an understanding of your own piteous position and the journey you too must travel unto death.
These lines of rhyme and half-rhyme are in themselves a station in my own Christian journey. Even as they were completed, I felt that I had moved on to a new place within faith. The pilgrimage continues.
