The Seventh Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Seventh Station

Jesus falls a second time

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

Our Lord and our God, what an amazing thing it is that you would permit men to put you in a position where you were truly helpless.   Even then, because you are God, you could have stopped the whole thing, called upon thousands of angels to come and rescue you.   But no, you wanted to be in a position where men who had been the cause of your suffering would have the chance to life you to your feet and assist you on your way to saving them.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.
