Stations of the Cross - Jesus Carries His Cross

Station 2 

Jesus Carries His Cross  

“So the soldiers took charge of Jesus.  Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgatha).”
John 19:16 & 17

Led to Calvary,
carrying the cross
By Yourself.
Yet was the cross only Yours,
or was it mine to carry as well?
Jesus, by Your cross
make me strong and able
to take up the cross that I
 must bear each day.
I meditate on the wood.
The weight.
The pain.
I carry it with you, Lord.
I won’t let go.
Art by Lindsey Leigh - 2006
