Extract: of the text that accompanies images

Jesus is condemned to death

The finger of a freshly washed
hand points condemnation.
A drip forms on the finger-tip
and glints in the sun,
blood-red.
May we walk from our prisons with thankfulness that your condemnation set us free. Amen.

Jesus takes up his cross

An arm raises up the torture instrument  to which a hand will be nailed  when a body is raised up as was  the bronze serpent in the wilderness.
May all who look on you, raised up upon the cross, know healing. Amen.

Jesus falls the first time

In our exhaustion and pain, may we know you alongside. Amen.

Jesus meets his mother
