The Third Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Third Station

Jesus falls for the first time

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

Lord, we are weak, and without your help we would fall a hundred times a day and never get up again.   But, with your life within us, with your Spirit leading us, we can win the victory over sin and our own selfishness.   We are no longer alone against the world, the flesh and the devil.   We are with you and you with us, and together we can rise and move on to eternal life.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.   
Stations of the Resurrection: Mary Magdalene (John 20:11-18)
