The Third Station
Welcome to the Lenten journey with the Lough Derg Way of the Cross. Today we entrust our prayer time with the apostle Andrew. Brother of Simon Peter and his fellow worker in fishing the Sea of Galilee, it was he who brought his brother to Jesus.
JESUS FALLS FOR THE FIRST TIME
It was no wonder that he fell. Jesus had suffered so much already that he could not see properly to pick his way through the city streets.
There are times, Lord, when we cannot hide our weakness or when we have to admit our failings not only to ourselves but also to others. Give us some of your courage to accept the limitations in our lives.
We pause for some quiet moments of prayer, our eyes on “the outstretched arms of Christ Crucified….”
Save us, Saviour of the World, for by your Cross and Resurrection you have set us free.
