Jesus Carries His Cross
This station teaches us that commitment costs.
Real commitment means that we carry the cost of our choices in bad times and good, in the face of opposition or approval. We pay the price of being true to ourselves. The consequence of truth is sometimes pain.
For Reflection: Having begun a good thing, will I pay the price to carry it through to fulfillment?
Prayer: Jesus, when what I set out to do seems more than I bargained for, give me the courage to go on.
