Station Thirteen: Jesus Dies on the Cross
Luke 23: 44-46
It was now about noon and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon because of an eclipse of the sun. Then the veil of the temple was torn down the middle. Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit"; and when he had said this he breathed his last.

We remember the witness of the martyrs.
Stephen, Peter, Andrew Dung-Lac, Charles Lwanga, Edith Stein, and Oscar Romero.
We remember the four girls of Birmingham slain at church on a Sunday morning in 1963 during the struggle for freedom.

They are martyrs too.
We remember all who, like Jesus, were slain for the cause of justice and peace in our world.
"For you were slain and with your blood you purchased for God those from every tribe and tongue, people and nation.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessing."
(Revelation 5: 9b, 12)
