Fourth Station: Look at Jesus
As Jesus walks slowly with the cross on his shoulders, a woman comes up to him. It’s Jesus’ mother, Mary. How sad for them to see each other now. Mary feels so sad because she sees how much he is suffering, and Jesus sees the sadness Mary feels. Even though they both know that God is with them, they can’t even say anything to each other, because they are so sad.
Look at Your Heart
Have you ever been very sad, or do you know someone who has been very sad? Being sad can really hurt someone's heart a lot, can’ it? Sometimes our hearts are sad because we cannot be with someone we love.
If you can remember a time when you were very sad, show Jesus what your heart looked like when you felt that way. Picture Jesus loving you when you show him your sad heart. Then, when you are ready, you can ask Jesus to help make your heart more like his.
