Fourteenth Station: Jesus is laid in the tomb

Posted on April 8th, 2000

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Matthew 27: 57-60
When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away.
