Good Friday retreat: Suffering Servant of Yahweh
Read the following passage prayerfully.
From the Book of Isaiah,
it foretells what Jesus undergoes on the cross –
the rejection and dishonor he receives.
As you do so,
imagine standing before the cross
and seeing the Lord as described
in these hauntingly vivid verses.
If you wish, you may play this instrumental music
to help you read the passage as contemplatively as possible.
