Fifth Station of the Cross

Fifth Station of the Cross

“Simon Helps Jesus to Carry the Cross”

We adore Thee, O Christ and venerate Thy cross by which Thou have redeemed us from the bondage of our enemies.

 Meditation: Consider how the Jews, seeing that at each step Jesus was on the point of expiring from weakness, and fearing that he would die on the way, when they wished His to die the ignominious death of the Cross, constrained Simon the Cyrenian to carry the Cross behind our Lord.

 

Prayer: ”My most sweet Jesus, I will not refuse the Cross, as the Cyrenian did, I accept it, I embrace it. I accept in particular the death Thou have destined for me. I unite it to Thy death, I offer it to Thee. Thou have died for live of me. I will die for love of Thee, and to please Thee. Help me by Thy grace. I love Thee more then myself, I repent with my whole heart for 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". 

 


At the end of each station, we recite these prayers:

 

 “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; the kingdom come; thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.”

 

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.  Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.”

 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now, and always and forever.  Amen”
