As I trust in your steadfast Love; my heart will rejoice, for in You is freedom.
A Good Friday Meditation
Lectio Imago is different to Lectio Divina as it invites you to enter the story in a different way.
As you listen to the words of this reading, allow yourself to be immersed in the story.
Are you an observer of Jesus standing a little way off?
Are you right there at the cross?
Do you find yourself connecting with one of the soldiers keeping watch or placing lots for Jesus’s clothing?
Are you one of Jesus’s faithful women friends who watch from a distance?
Are you one of the two criminals hanging either side of Jesus?
Something else my capture and invite your imagination as you listen to the words.
Notice how you feel inside – how does your body respond to what is happening around you as you become part of the story?
How do you feel?
What stirs within?
What is God inviting you to through this reading?
Let yourself be led and see where these words take you and what they offer.
