Jesus arrives at his place of execution. He is stripped of his clothes, his dignity – he has nothing left.
Do we recognise dignity in our own lives?  In the lives of others?
Throughout the world, the vulnerable and the poor are stripped of their homes, their communities, their hopes. Women are degraded in many cultures. In looking for a place of safety, victims, people, animals, all beings  are often met with hostility and callus degradation .
No abuse can degrade love
Love is is humble, patient, clean and bright. It is transcendent.
