The Fifth Station

When Your strength failed You,

Simon was there.

He carried Your cross.

Who was this man

who came to the  aide of

my weary Lord?

With gratitude I remember

that he stood near your executioners

and accusers and offered his hands

and a strong back

in Your moment of need.

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
