THIRD STATION - Jesus Falls the First Time

We adore You O Christ  and we Praise You
 R : Because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world

Jesus Falls the First Time

19 With sweat on your face you will eat your bread, until you return to clay, since it was from clay that you were taken, for you are dust and to dust you shall return."
20 The man called his wife by the name of Eve, because she was the mother of all the living.
21 Yahweh God made garments of skin for the man and his wife, and with these he clothed them.
22 Then Yahweh God said, "Man has now become like one of us, making himself judge of good and evil. Let him not stretch out his hand to take and eat from the tree of Life as well, and live forever."
23 So God cast him from the garden of Eden to till the soil from which he had been made.
24 And after having driven the man out, God posted cherubim and a flaming sword that kept turning at the east of the garden of Eden to guard the way to the tree of Life.
Genesis 3 : 19-24

As  we follow Jesus along with Mary on the Way of the Cross,  JESUS FALLS.
Think of the First Fall of Adam and Eve. They had disobeyed God, breaking communion with God, thus being unable to commune with each other without selfish motives. Communion of humanity with the Trinitarian God and with each other was God’s Plan from the beginning of creation. But humanity was cast out of the garden of friendship with God, sent into exile to suffer and toil as penance.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, you loved us so much that you sent  your Son to be the New Adam  to be born  of  Mary the New Eve. Jesus took the curse of the First Fall of Adam and Eve upon himself by carrying the Cross. We pray that every consecrated virgin  should receive the grace every moment of her life, to choose to be like Mary the New Eve, who constantly discerned and followed your will in the life of her family. May the sweat of  work and penance  remind consecrated virgins that to be a bride of Jesus Christ is not just romanticism but it means participation in his suffering to complete it by representing his body, the Church so that your Plan to reconcile all things in Christ may be fulfilled.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be…………
