Pilate and Jesus

The church of St. Martin de Porres in Marigot on St. Martin has a unique set of the stations of the Cross.  Each is a painting done by a different artist in whatever style he or she chose.  This is the first station: Pilate condemns Jesus to death.
Luke 23:1-25 has Pilate declare the innocence of Jesus three times.  Finally, however, Pilate caves in to the demands of leaders and the crowd, and hands Jesus over to their will.
We ask forgiveness for the many times we caved in to the crowd.
I love you, Jesus my Love, let me love you always.
