Stations of the Cross 2021 by Fr Brian Kealey – 2

The Second Station

Jesus receives the cross

 

We adore thee Oh Christ and we praise thee

Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world

 

First Voice

Again it is the threat of pain

The symbol more powerful than the act

To kill was not enough to subdue

The victim’s screams needed to echo in the brain

Obedience a willing escape

From the consequence of independence

Safety compliance and mediocrity

Second Voice

The symbol more powerful than the act

To touch, take on and expose

Fear failure concealed weakness

As real as the wood

But here the contradiction

Prepared for crucifixion

This life begins resurrection

I love you Jesus

My love above all things

I regret with my whole heart of having offended thee

Never permit me to separate myself from thee again

Grant that I may love thee always and then do with me what thou will
