The Second Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Second Station

Jesus bears His cross

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

Lord, when things don't go the way we want them to, we complain and try everything we can to get rid of the little cross we are carrying, and we even try to take revenge sometimes on anybody who is the cause of our trouble.   And yet, you not only accepted the cross, you also accepted us in all our weakness, and this love of yours has saved the world!

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.
