The Third Station - Jesus Falls
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Christ Speaks: The God who made the universe and holds it in existence by his will alone, becomes human, too weak to bear a piece of timber's weight. How human in his weakness is God's Son. My Father willed it thus. I could not be your model otherwise. If you would be my friend, you also must accept without complaint your human frailties.
We Speak: Loving Jesus, how can we refuse? We willingly accept our weaknesses, our irritations and our many moods, our headaches and fatigue, all our defects of body, mind, spirit and soul. Because they are your will for me, these "challenges" of our humanness. We gladly struggle with them. Make us content with all our discontents, but give us strength to struggle after you!
