2nd Sorrowful Mystery: The Scourging at the Pillar
"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our
iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by
his wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:5
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Catholic Online) - 2nd Sorrowful Mystery: The Scourging at the pillar
"Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged." John 19:1
The fruit of the mystery is purity, and accepting the will of God.
Flogging: They used a whip made of several strips of leather that were embedded at the ends with jagged pieces of bone and lead. No Roman limitation was placed on the number of lashings inflicted, and often the victim didn't survive the flogging. Jesus did.
"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed." Isaiah 53:5
Every blow from that cruel whip was for my sake. Every vicious tear in His flesh, every drop of precious blood that flowed was for my healing. Every agonizing moment of pain He endured was to secure my peace. His punishment, my freedom.
My impurities are not beaten out of me; they were beaten out of Him.
God deals with me gently and patiently, always with love.
I can't even fathom the harsh treatment Jesus received in my stead. He must have cried out in pain, but He never protested. He never even tried to whisper a plea to the Father, "Stop! Please stop!"
He would do anything to rescue a lost child.
