Tenth Station - Jesus is stripped of his garments

When they came to a place called Golgotha (which means the place of a skull), they offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. And they divided his garments among them by casting lots. This was to fulfill the scripture which says, “They divided my garments among them; they cast lots for my clothing.”

10. Jesus is stripped of his garments—Donna Seelbach, painted silk

I have been painting on silk since 1991. I teach children art in the summers and I work at the Cabrillo Stroke Center during the school year. What the station brings to mind for me is how during Lent we are laid bare before God with ourselves as we are. When garments are ripped away from us we are vulnerable, we can no longer hide. We are vulnerable to His working in us.
