“What begins in tragedy, ends in farce. He said he was a king, so dress him up as one: twist some thorns into a crown; and so that everyone can enjoy the joke, write it in three languages upon his cross: Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.” Stephen Cottrell reflects on the Sixth Station: Jesus scourged and crowned with thorns, with readings and prayers from Philip North. Today's reading is Mark 15.17-19.
