Fourteenth Station ~ Jesus is Laid in the Tomb

Jesus is Laid in the Tomb

It is always from the deaths of the spirit that Christ's resurrection comes. 
When we know ourselves as sinners and are sorry, 
our resurrection is at hand. 
When we are iron-bound in the winter frost of aridity,
 the springtime of resurrection is very near. 
When it seems that we have failed,
 that everything is over, 
and we are in the darkness of the tomb with Christ, 
then the angels will come and roll away the great heavy stone, 
and resurrection with Christ will come.
