Stations of the Cross Photoessay - 10 - Jesus is stripped of his garments

When "Jesus is stripped of his garments" it brings to my mind a loss of humanity, a dehumanizing, bestial treatment lacking in dignity. He was treated as an animal, as animals don't wear clothing.

The holocaust memorial in SF strikes me as rather similar in its depiction because it shows how truly awful we can be when we don't treat each other as children of God. When we forget that we are all humans, we cage and fence people, and ignore the rotting bodies lying around us. 

May we always find God in every person we meet.
