Background: The 13th station marks Jesus being taken off the cross and prepared for burial. A mural on the wall in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher depicts this station.
Read: Matthew 27:59-60
Reflection: Jesus had died, but this was not the end. For his followers they still had burial preparations, because little did they know that they were not necessary. Just as they made preparations, you are nearing the end of this prayer journey and need to prepare yourself to leave.
Pray: As you prepare to leave here, prayerfully reflect on how you are going to let experiencing the story of Jesus’ death impact your daily living the rest of this Holy Week.
