During Holy Week, we’re pairing Stations of the Cross at various parishes where Missionaries of the Precious Blood are in ministry with thoughts from Missionaries about Lent, holiness, prayer and our connection to Christ. This station, Jesus is stripped of his garments, is from St. Aloysius Church in Carthagena, Ohio.

From Fr. Bill Nordenbrock, C.PP.S., moderator general of the C.PP.S. worldwide: “Sometimes we think that our egos are independent from God. Our spiritual journey is about overcoming that. Our true identity is that we’re inseparable from God. If that’s my true identity, then that effects what I say, what my hands are doing, where I put my feet. Faithful living flows out of that identity.”
