Praying the Way of the Cross

Jesus falls for the third time

Station IX
Jesus falls the third time

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

SCRIPTURE READING John 14:15-18

If you love me and obey the commands I give you, I will ask the Father and he will give you another Paraclete -- to be with you always: the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept since it neither sees him nor recognizes him; but you can recognize him because he remains with you and will be within you. I will not leave you orphaned; I will come back to you.

REFLECTION

Let us be glad when we are afflicted and the cross is most heavy on our shoulders, because then if we suffer with the patience of Christ we will begin to be His disciples.

--Saint Paul of the Cross

LET US PRAY

O Lord, may our human weakness be sustained by Your merciful help, so that while our human nature is frail, it may be strengthened by Your divine clemency. Through Christ our Lord, AMEN.
