We Walk with Christ: Second Station

Jesus takes up His cross.
Has anyone in your family been ill this Lenten season?
Do you have a loved one in a nursing home?
Did you have to go to the dentist this Lent?
Are you stressing over high gas prices? food budget? electrical fees? prices that you have no control over?
Is your family eating peanut butter sandwiches tonight because of the rising cost of living, not because you're overly heroic or saintly?
Has someone criticized your family size, your educational choice, your vocation of staying home?
Did you try talking to your insurance company today then decided it wasn't worth loosing your religion over?
How are you carrying the cross Christ has asked you to carry with Him?
He summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them, "Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me."  Mark 8:34
Pray that you might carry your cross joyfully and willing.
"We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless You. Because by Thy Holy Cross Thou hast redeemed the world."
