Women are wailing
Jesus carries his cross to the place of execution. Based on Luke 23.26-27
Look Jesus is hurt from the whippings he’s had. The cross is heavy. They make Simon carry it. This is your Lord they are taking away.
Reflect Imagine that you are among the crowd, watching Jesus; watching Simon as he is forced to carry Jesus’ cross. This is the one who you thought would save the world. He is going to die.
Pray for those who are sad and mourn; for those who are unjustly accused; for those who are cruel and hurt others. Thank God for the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
