Station 9

Station 9: Jesus Falls for the Third Time

Scripture Passage

I lie prostrate in the dust; give me life according to your word. I declared my ways and you answered me; teach me your commands. Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wondrous deeds. My soul weeps for sorrow; strengthen me with your words. (Ps 118: 25-28)

Meditation from Fr. Jason Smith, LC

We adore you, O Christ, and praise you, for by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.

Each time Jesus falls, his eyes meet ours: Could it be that we are one of the motivations that kept him going, that in thinking of us he finds the strength to continue forward so that he can lay down his life for our redemption? Perhaps, as Jesus fell to the ground, he thought of us and rose again.
