As we pass each day now, in these final days of Lent, let us stay very close to Jesus, there is nothing more important than being with Jesus. If we travel closely with Jesus right now, we will be able to feel the movements in his heart. This week, I would love to post something every day between Tuesday-Friday, in preparation for Holy Week. Then on Passion Sunday-Palm Sunday, there will be a Lectio Post as usual, but then nothing during Holy week, until Easter Lectio Post. Let us spend Holy week- away from technology as much as we can, let us fast from it, in order to feast on the Word each day, so as to be with Jesus. Posted today, is a very simple 2 line 'Stations of the Cross' taken from the Missionary of Charity prayer book. Mother wrote these. I am just sharing the first two lines of each station; they can be easily memorized and will help us, to walk the way of the cross in our daily life.
Stations of the Cross
1st Station: Jesus is condemned to die, God through sin I crucify.
2nd Station: Jesus bears the bitter cross, Bear me up in grief and loss.
3rd Station: Jesus falls in Blood and woe, Sins of mine have struck him low
4th Station: Son and Mother meet in pain, must they grieve for me in vain
5th Station: Simon helps to bear the load, lead me too along your road.
6th Station: On a cloth he prints His face, in my soul your image trace.
7th Station: Struck to earth again by me, help me rise to follow you
8th Station: Weep for sin He tells them here, Jesus make my grief sincere
9t Station: Thrice He falls by lashes torn, in your Blood I rise reborn
10th Station Stripping Christ they tear His skin, help me tear my flesh from sin
11th Station: In His hands they drive the nails, in your hands, I cannot fail
12th Station: Jesus dies His all to give, by our death teach me to live
13th Station: Mary as you take your Son, take me too when life is done
14th Station: Buried Christ who died for me, May I rest at last in you
