The 7th Station:
The way uphill becomes even more difficult. Jesus is weak. He feels again the
weight, the pain, the solitude, the humiliation. He prays silently to the
Father and tries to move on. He tries not to think, he tries not to feel, he
tries to keep moving to avoid at least more lashes from the soldiers or more
mocking cheers from those around him. He tries to avoid the pebbles in the
pathway as they hurt him under his soles.
Dear Jesus, how many times have I wondered why I have to fall and rise again! How many times have I stumbled in my paths and returned to your loving care! And you helped me up without questioning, without prejudice, without hat! You care for me and this feeling comes to me as I again see you under the weight of the cross. My sins are adding their weight too! Dear Lord, at this station I am not going to ask for anything but to thank you heartily for the love you have for each and every person. Thank you Jesus!
