Stations of the Cross, Ninth Station

The Ninth Station

Jesus falls a third time


We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you,
because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world.

I lie prostrate in the dust; give me life according to your word. I declared my ways, and you answered me; teach me your commands. Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wondrous deeds. My sould weeps for sorrow; strengthen me with your words. (Ps. 118, 25 to 28)

Reflection: The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear? The Lord is my life's refuge; of whom should I be afraid? When evildoers come at me to devour my flesh, my foes and my enemies themselves stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war be waged upon me, even then will I trust. (Ps. 26, 1 to 3)

Let us pray: Almighty and eternal God, You permitted your Son to be weakened, crushed, and profaned so that He might rise from the dead freed from the ravages of sin. Help us to accept our weaknesses and failings as forerunners of our glorious resurrection in union with your Son. Amen.
