Lenten Sermons free pdf Excerpt from Lenten Sermons To-day we will represent to ourselves in the spirit of the First Station, which bears the inscription: "Jesus is condemned to death," and consider two reasons why he was condemned to death, namely: I. The human fear of Pontius Pilate, and II. The inconstancy of the Jewish people. "We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee. Because by the holy cross thou hast redeemed the world." Part I. Accompanied by his disciples our Blessed Lord repaired to Mount Olivet in the evening of Holy Thursday to begin his Passion, and there, in an agony, the bitterness of which it were indeed a vain attempt to depict, he was bathed in a bloody sweat and apprehended by his relentless foes. Like a criminal, deserving of death, he was led first to Annas where a rude servant dared to strike his divine and holy face, then to Caiphas where he was declared guilty of death. Then during the whole night he was so shockingly insulted and maltreated, that St. Jerome says: "The mockery and insult which were inflicted on Jesus during that night were so great that their enormity shall only be known on the day of judgment." When after a night of such humiliation and suffering, day dawned, our Good Friday, the Jews brought Jesus before Pilate, that he might condemn him to death: Let us now consider: I. The human fear of Pilate which caused him to condemn Christ to death. Pilate before very long was firmly convinced that in the suffering Jesus he beheld an innocent victim, and, having still a due regard for what was right and just, he was willing to set him free. Having examined our Lord, he appeared before the Jews, and said to them: "I find no cause in this man." - Luke 23:14, but the Jews, so far from being satisfied with this assurrance, insisted with unrelenting fury upon his death. Then Pilate had recourse to a most cruel means to save Jesus. "I will chastise him therefore and release him." - Luke 23:16. He thought that by applying the stinging lash to the tender flesh of our Saviour, the rage of the Jews would be appeased. Jesus therefore was scourged. This punishment, which was meted out by the Romans only upon slaves, and the vilest of malefactors was horrible, and many died while the torturers pursued their task. Picture to yourselves, O Christians! from six to eight men, human beings indeed, but with hearts destitute of one trace of humanity, who were permitted to exercise their cruel will against the Saviour of the world! They rudely tore off his clothing, bound him with ropes to a column, and two by two, relieved each other in the fiendish work.
