Stations of the Cross: Station 5 - Simon Helps Jesus Carry His Cross

“As they led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.”
Luke 23:26

Simon, coming in from the  fields
pressed to carry Your cross. 
He heard Your cries.
 He felt Your pain.
 Did he sense who You really were?
 That You were more
 than a mere man?
 Have I been pressed
to carry Your cross as well? 
My own cross?
My own suffering?
I’ll walk by Your side, Lord
I’ll carry the cross
until it is finished.
