Pilate judges unjustly because of his human respect. Jesus is silent and accepts the unjust judgement. He feels its injustice deeply in his heart, but says not a word.
How difficult this is for me when I believe that I am right. How I defend myself when someone speaks an unjust word about me.
Teach me, Jesus, to be silent when I meet injustice. I will bear it out of love for you. I will not flare up but master myself. I will then think of the sentence passed against you. And when I must speak against it, I will do so with love and patience as you did. Mary, my mother, obtain for me this grace.
