The Way of the Cross – Station #5

The Way of the Cross

Station #5: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry His cross.

Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry His cross

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because by Your Holy Cross You
have redeemed the world.

My Lord Jesus Christ:

Sometimes You ask me to be a Simon. When I endure trials willingly for the sake of loving others, I am carrying Your Cross with You. What a privilege! What an honor! And yet, so often I try to get rid of this Cross; I don’t want to help You. I’d rather fight back when someone argues with me. I’d rather stay angry than forgive quickly. I’d rather have others bend to my will instead of accepting the unhappy load of serving their desires. Help me to become more like You, loving my enemies, doing good to those who hurt me, forgiving them unendingly.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Start the music and sing:

Can the human heart refrain
from partaking in her pain,
in that Mother’s pain untold?

Jesus, let’s walk together to the sixth Station of the Cross >>
