The meditations that I am using for this post and the next two posts are from the Pieta prayer book.
Jesus is Condemned to Death
O Jesus! so meek and uncomplaining, teach me resignation in trials.
Jesus Carries His Cross
My Jesus, this cross should be mine, not Thine; my sins crucified Thee.
Jesus Falls the First Time
O Jesus! by this first fall, never let me fall into mortal sin.
Jesus Meets His Mother
Oh Jesus! may no human tie, however dear, keep me from following the road of the cross.
Simon the Cyrenean Helps Jesus Carry His Cross
Simon unwillingly assisted Thee; may I with patience suffer all for Thee.
