IX: Jesus falls the third time

IX: Jesus falls the third time

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.

Meditation
Consider how Jesus Christ fell for the third time. He was extremely weak and the cruelty of His executioners was excessive; they tried to hasten His steps though He could hardly walk. My outraged Jesus, by the weakness You suffered in going to Calvary, give me enough strength to overcome all human respect and all my evil passions which have led me to despise Your friendship.

Prayer
I love You, Jesus, my love; I repent of ever having offended You. Never let me separate myself from You again. Grant that I may love You always; and then do with me as You will.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be

Make me feel as You have felt
Make my soul to glow and melt
With the love of Christ, my Lord.
