Jesus falls for a third time

Jesus falls for a third time

We adore you O Christ and praise you
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world

He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness and being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death - even death on a cross.

Meditation

Again we can see the humiliaion. I don't suppose everyone was like Veronica. Just think of the jeering, the spitting, the shouting, the laughter of the crowd. Perhaps a huge cheer went up as Jesus falls again. The cruelty of the world finds entertainment in such things. Just think of some of the TV shows that 'entertain' with the broken lives of those induced to appear on them. They have a cross to bear and we make public entertainment out of them.


O Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us(x3)

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est
(Where charity and love are, God is there)
