Stations of the Cross 2021 by Fr Brian Kealey – 5

 

The Fifth Station

Simon of Cyrene is called to help carry the cross

 

We adore thee Oh Christ and we praise thee

Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world

 

First Voice

He is dragged in

Wrong place, wrong time

Ordered to take up the burden of this victim

But who is he helping

The man so close to death

Or the powerful Legion

Who choose to preserve this specimen

The subject of their sport.

Second Voice

I don’t know

Do I buy the drink

To preserve the peace?

Do I pamper the symptoms

To appease the patient

Am I helping?

Am I crucifying?

I don’t know

 

 

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
