‘The Way of the Cross’: Jesus Falls for the Third Time

Ninth Station

Jesus Falls the Third Time

Lord, you fell a third time, exhausted and humiliated, beneath the weight of your cross. Lord, how many times have you asked us this disturbing question: “Where is your brother? Where is your sister?” How many times have you reminded us that their heartbreaking cry rises up to you? Help us to share the sufferings of all those treated as refuse. It is all too easy to condemn people and difficult situations that offend our false sense of decency. It is less easy to accept our responsibilities as individuals, as governments, and as Christian communities.
