SEVENTH STATION - Jesus Falls the Second Time

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

 Jesus Falls the Second Time

The first time Jesus had a fall under the weight of the cross of our sins, he got up with courage. We humans can hardly gather courage when we fail, to rise and resume the journey  towards something  we know will only increase our suffering and finally perhaps end our works, mission, successes, hopes that dear ones have from us. Yet the young Jesus got up and walked.  He fell  the second time. His energy was getting depleted. What motivated him to stand again and move on ?  His Love for each one of us gave him strength.

Life is often a drudgery, sometimes we feel we have wasted our time, we have wasted ourselves in service of others, only to receive rejection, mockery, condemnation to death by the very people whose dreams were fulfilled, whose lives were saved because of some gesture or service on our part.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, often we cannot fathom your Plan for our lives when in the middle of our mission we find we have been cut off. We give our lives completely to you, only to discover that we are treated as mere objects, cheap labour or consecrated for the utility value of voluntary service to the Church. We are not valued as persons. Help every consecrated virgin who finds herself in such situation to  keep courage, to think of herself as an ‘unprofitable servant’ at  the service of your will, uniting her suffering to Christ, to rise everytime  she falls under the weight. We pray that  women should be treated with dignity in  every church/ diocese.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be…………
