5th Station - Simon Helps Jesus


We adore you O Christ & we praise you


Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Consider how weak and weary Jesus was. At each step He was at the point of expiring. Fearing that He would die on the way when they wished Him to die the infamous death of the cross, they forced Simon of Cyrene to help carry the cross after Our Lord. 

Simon didn’t come to help Jesus but to see what was going on. Then he was ordered by the soldiers to carry the cross, because Jesus was having such a hard time.

Are we like Simon who needs to be reminded to help others?

Prayer : All
Jesus sometimes I don’t want to help my friend, brother, sisters or parents when I am asked. Help me to have an open of heart like Simon to respond to the needs of others even when I may not be ready or know how to. AMEN

Sing : All
Were you there when they called for Simon’s help? X 2
Oh! Sometimes It causes me to
Tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they called for Simon’s help?
