The Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Stations
6th Station—Veronica wipes the face of Jesus
We are prompted through charity and mercy to help others. Others are blessed and consoled. And we take away with us the imprint of God’s goodness flowing through us, conforming us more completely to Jesus as He makes His way into the world.
7th Station—Jesus falls the second time
Oh sad disappointment! More pain. Still, the journey remains incomplete. Must we continue? We rise and return to the cross, to the plan unfulfilled.
8th Station—Jesus consoles the women of Jerusalem
Pity the women who share the dreadful concern of Mary for the children of God. Each person is someone’s child and holds the hopes and prayers of a mother that the world will be gentle and kind. Oh Jesus, give us your mercy for others.
