STATION 7: Jesus Falls A Second Time

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

My Lord Jesus Christ:

How tired and pain-wracked Your Sacred Body must have been when You fell a second time! You could have chosen to die right then and there, rather than go on to face more suffering and that most gruesome death on the Cross. And yet, You chose to find more strength so that You could go all the way to Calvary. I offer up to You all those times when I want to quit dealing with my own problems, all those times when I want to quit trying, all those times when I want quit facing more difficulties and find a way out. Lord Jesus, be the strength and patience and endurance that I need to keep on walking through my pain and suffering.

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

For the sins of His own nation
Saw Him hang in desolation
Till His spirit forth He sent
