Way of the Cross: Station 9

Jesus falls the Third Time

This station asks us to persevere in doing good, to hold our course even when the pressures around us threaten to break our spirits.

Jesus’ life was all about taking the consequences of love and justice. Getting up and starting over is one of the marvels of such a life and quitting is not an option.

For Reflection: Am I about something big enough to be worth every effort, something that demands the very best of me? If not, what is life about?Prayer:Jesus, when I am tempted to sit back and ignore the big things of life or quit the hard ones, give me a measure of your spirit and enable me to keep going.
