The Eighth Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Eighth Station

Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
Because by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.

O Lord, how blind these women were!   No wonder you said to them, "Weep not for me but for yourselves."   They should have wept for themselves, for they completely missed what was really happening.   They completely missed the tremendous thing you were doing.   They didn't realize that you weren't just a man, a poor convict condemned to death.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.   

Stations of the Resurrection:  Thomas (John 20: 24 - 29)
