quite a trek

26 Sep


We prayed the stations at Lourdes. It was not a walk in the park, but up a challenging hill. Get over it, right? Jesus’ way of the cross was no walk in the park. Always I am anxious to see how any set of Stations portrays #5: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry his cross. That is what we are call to do: pick up their cross, put it on our back and help them carry it. I never see or pray the 5th station without thinking of my friends – our friends – in Beit Jala (Bethlehem) who are at station #12: the Crucifixion.
