14th Station: Jesus is Laid in the Tomb   After Jesus had died on the cross, it was Joseph of Arimathea,..."himself awaiting the kingdom of God," who courageously came and asked for the body of Jesus to arrange for his burial. One can only imagine the many thoughts and emotions of Joseph at that time. Aren't we all awaiting the kingdom of God? Lord, give us courage to show compassion and love even when it is unpopular, difficult, or risky, just as Joseph of Arimathea did for Jesus
