Station 1- Wash (John 13)
The night he’s betrayed Jesus takes off his robe, takes on the role of a servant and washes his friends’ dirty feet. It’s a symbolic action showing how God has taken off his divinity and come to us as a servant, Jesus. What it means to follow him, Jesus says, is for us to wash one another’s feet. To serve.
Station 2- Pray (Mark 14.32-42)
In the Garden, knowing his ‘hour’ of suffering/glory is fast approaching, Jesus prays to God to move this ‘cup’ from him; that is, to move Jesus off the path of suffering. The fear, alienation and sorrow Jesus experiences in the Garden is meant to evoke the experience we all share apart from God.

Jesus is crucified, but as he dies on the cross he prays that God forgive his
enemies for ‘they know not what they do.’
