FIFTH STATION - Simon of Cyrene Helps Jesus Carry His Cross

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

Simon of Cyrene Helps Jesus Carry His Cross

Sometimes it takes little things done with love for our brethren, that mean so much to our Lord Jesus Christ. Today he continues to carry his cross to calvary, but through the suffering of the members of the Church who are his body and also unknown human persons who struggle with basic needs in life, food, shelter, water, love. Think of the millions of poor in regions of Africa or the persecuted Christians in some parts of Asia. Every moment  the cross of death weighs heavy on their lives. Can we do anything concretely to reduce the burdens that are carried by people we meet - willingly or  do we feel  service of the marginalised is IMPOSED upon us ?  Every consecrated virgin has one obligation:  TO LOVE  God’s children as her own.

Prayer :  Dear Lord Jesus, so often  you need our help and support. You are present in our suffering brethren, but we tend to shun the cross. Give your grace to every consecrated virgin this lenten season and every day of her life, to be purified of  romanticised interest in wearing veils, bridal gowns, calling oneself your bride, indulging in self-sufficiency, living on cloud nine with beautiful consolation. Help every consecrated virgin to focus on the essentials of the vocation in loving you, the love of virginity of the faith, love for those who suffer, love for martyrdom like you.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be…………
