First Station

Jesus is condemned to death

It is not just Pilate who condemns -
Hands stretch out from the crowd
Fingers point in accusation
The cry ‘Crucify him!’

Who wants to take the risk
Of setting Jesus free?
They want the life more ordinary
And so refuse to see
Three fingers pointing back
And the question
‘Do you know what you do?’

Second Station at Brigid's Mantle
