Most of us can probably cope with our first fall - but the second is much harder. Our pride is really bruised. This photo shows all the other crosses of the world battering down Our Lord to the ground. Some of these crosses are our sins, and so as we approach Holy Week we must ask Jesus to forgive us our sins. He waits to forgive us and raise us up again.
At times life seems tough, but as we meditate on this station may we hear Jesus say to us 'come to me, all you who labour and overburdened, and I will give you rest.'
