The Seventh Station: Jesus Falls the Second Time
We adore you, O Christ and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross, you have saved the world.
Jesus is so tired that he falls again under the weight of the heavy cross. He is bruised and bleeding and the soldiers whip him to hurry him along.
Jesus, you fall again, and once more you manage to get up. I see your limbs with weakness. The scourging has sapped you of all your strength. Will you be able to continue?
Dear Jesus, help me to be strong and determined when nothing seems to be right. When I am not doing well in life, help me to keep on trying and to do my best to improve. Please don’t let me give up.
