Jesus takes up the Cross

Roman soldiers lead Jesus out
The execution beam is placed across his shoulders
The beam is our human rebellion against God
The beam crushed...
Jesus stumbles....staggers....falls

Jesus, grant us the strength to carry our crosses:
when it seems all our energy has failed
when living seems monotonous
when we remain attached to the past
when all seems unsure, unclear, doubtful
when small arrangements nag us
when mental and physical pain dominate
when we can no longer be creative
when we feel that no one understands
when we cannot pray
when both body and soul are restless
when we feel opposition
