2nd Station
Jesus Bears His Cross



V - We adore Thee, O Christ, and bless Thee
R - Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world


The soldiers brought the cross to Jesus and put it on His shoulders. He knew Hechildsta.gif (43485 bytes) was not guilty of any crime but He accepted the heavy cross and carried it to show us how much He loves us. Sometimes things do not go as you want them to go, but you can't run away and take the easy way out. To really get anything out of life you have to work at it every day. Jesus gave us His example; even though it was hard and painful; He accepted all our sins and took up the cross.

Lord Jesus, give me strength to do the things I don't like to do.

(Our Father....) (Hail Mary....) (Glory Be to the Father....)


V - Jesus Christ Crucified
R - Have mercy on us
V - May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace
R - Amen
