"Jesus is Stripped of his Garments"
They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him. Matt 27.28
One of the most poignant actions of Maundy Thursday is the
stripping of the altars, the removal of all that decorates the
church, to recall this stripping of Jesus' garments, to die
without a shred of dignity. The attack on his dignity is intentional,
a repeat of the mockery of him by the soldiers before Pilate.
Pray for all who find themselves stripped of their human dignity as
part of their position in life.
