Praying the Way of the Cross

Station V
Jesus falls the second time

V. We adore You, O Christ and we praise You.
R. Because by Your holy Cross You have redeemed the world.

SCRIPTURE READING Matthew 11:28-30

Come to me, all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon your shoulders and learn from me, for l am gentle and humble of heart. Your souls will find rest, for my yoke is easy and my burden light.

REFLECTION

The greater number of Christians live unmindful of all that Jesus, our Life, has done and suffered. That is why they live on, sleeping in the night of iniquity.

--Saint Paul of the Cross

LET US PRAY

O God, our help, look upon us, so that we who are oppressed by the weight of our sins, may through Your mercy, serve You in freedom of spirit. Through Christ our Lord, AMEN.
