Jesus is Judged by Pilate

I am back to following the booklet with Pope John II's Stations

Pilate the Gentile interrogates:
Are you the king of the Jews?
Pilate finds a loophole: Jesus is a Galilean
Pilate hands over Jesus to Herod
Herod hands Jesus back to Pilate
"I do not find this man guilty nor does Herod."
Another stratagem: This man or Barabbas?
Weak Pilate washes his own hands and hands over Jesus to be whipped by the soldiers.

My own reflection: Jesus is now passive. He allows all this suffering to show His love for us. What will I say and do as I contemplate the Heart of Jesus undergoing all this to show His love for me?
