“Jesus was arraigned before the procurator, Pontius Pilate, who questioned him: ‘Are you the king of the Jews?’ Jesus responded, ‘As you say.’ Yet when he was accused by the chief priests and elders he had made no reply. Then Pilate said to him, ‘Surely you hear how many charges they bring against you?’ He did not answer him on a single count, much to the procurator’s surprise.”
As you hear Jesus’ words or experience his silence, what strikes you?
How do His words and silence touch you?
Let Jesus’ response of words or silence inspire your spirit.
Heritage word—“Rooting our inner self in the ground of non-violence is the first step on the journey to right relationships.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
