Third Station:  Jesus fall the first time

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you

because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.


Bible Reading – Isaiah 53. 1


Who would have believed what we now tell?

Who could have seen God’s hand in this?




Jesus was exhausted.

He was in pain.

He was going to his death.

The cross was heavy and he fell.

He was flesh and blood like us,

he was struggling.



For all who are exhausted, particularly our healthcare workers;

For those in pain and all who are struggling to stay alive:

Lord, in your mercy

hear our prayer.
