Stations of The Cross
5th Station - Simon of Cyrene Helps Jesus
V. We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you;
R. Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
From Matthew chapter 27 vs 32
They meet a Cyrenean named Simon. This man they pressed into service to carry the cross.
Christ’s yoke is easy, and His burden light as Simon learned in helping Jesus. Though we naturally resist pain and hardship, we also will find that serving Christ will be a joy.
Jesus, we pray here for fathers of our families. Specially for those fathers who feel pressured to keep their difficult jobs going, in order to pay the bills, put food on the table, give a good education to their children and keep their families happy. Give our fathers the joy to know that by serving their families, they are serving Christ. We love you Jesus.
1 Our Father - 1 Hail Mary - 1 Glory Be ...
O Jesus Crucified - for us you suffered - for us you died - on the cross
