5th Station - Simon of Cyrene

Simon could hardly have been pleased at being ordered to help Jesus carry his cross. However, this scene suggests that not only did Jesus benefit from Simon's help, Simon benefited from the presence of Jesus.

It would appear that Jesus is saying something to Simon, and that Simon is listening carefully to Jesus. I wonder what Jesus is saying? I'm sure it must have been something wise and loving.

Jesus can speak to us today when we help someone who is suffering to carry their cross.
