THE SEVENTH STATION
JESUS FALLS THE SECOND TIME
† We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.
Consider Simon who is behind Me; he is helping Me to carry the Cross.
He is a man lacking good will; he is a mercenary because if he accompanies Me and shares the weight of the Cross, it is because he has been forced to do so.
For that reason, when he feels tired, he lets the full weight of the Cross fall on Me.
Thus, I fall to the ground for the second time.
My Father sends Angels to assist Me.
They help to maintain My human consciousness when I fall.
My battle must continue until the appointed time so that many souls are not lost.
I walk over the stones that destroy My feet.
As I stumble and fall, I look into the crowd searching for a small look of love, of union with My pain, however… I do not see anyone with a look of compassion.
My children, will you who follow in My footsteps not let go of your cross even if it seems so heavy.
Do it for Me.
In carrying your cross, you will help Me carry Mine, and on the difficult path, you will find My mother and the holy souls who will give you support and comfort.
† Jesus, most obedient, meek and humble of heart, have mercy on us.
