THE FIFTH STATION

SIMON HELPS JESUS

TO CARRY HIS CROSS

 

We adore you, O Christ,

and we bless you

Because by your holy cross

you have redeemed the world.

 

FROM SACRED SCRIPTURE

Gospel of Matthew 27: 32; 16: 24

As they were going out, 

they met a Cyrenian named Simon; 

this man they pressed into service

to carry his cross. 

Then Jesus said to his disciples, 

“Whoever wishes to come after me

must deny himself,

take up his cross, 

and follow me.”

PRAYER

Lord Jesus,

you opened the eyes and heart 

of Simon of Cyrene, 

and you gave him, 

by his share in your Cross, 

the grace of faith. 

Help us to aid our neighbors in need, 

even when this interferes 

with our own plans and desires. 

Help us to realize that it is a grace 

to be able to share the cross of others 

and, in this way, 

know that we are walking with you

along the way. 

Help us to appreciate with joy that, 

when we share in your suffering 

and the sufferings of this world, 

we become servants of salvation

and are able to help build up your Body, 

the Church.

 

HYMN

At the cross her station keeping

Stood the mournful Mother weeping

Close to Jesus to the last
