‘The Way of the Cross’ Station 7: Jesus Falls for the Second Time

Seventh Station

Jesus Falls for the Second Time

“When he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly” (1 Pet 2:23)

“Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Lk 23:34). Lord, you too bore the burden of condemnation, rejection, abandonment and suffering inflicted by persons who had met you, listened to you, and followed you.

In the certainty that the Father had not abandoned you, you found the strength to accept his will by offering forgiveness, love and hope to those who today, like you, walk the same path of ridicule, contempt, mockery, abandonment, betrayal and loneliness.

From “The Way of the Cross with Pope Francis.”
