8th Station: Jesus Meets The Women Of Jerusalem Print E-mail

Eighth StationJesus, as you carry your cross you see a group of women along the road.  As you pass by you see they are sad.  You stop to spend a moment with them, to offer them some encouragement.  Although you have been abandoned by your friends and are in pain, you stop and try to help them.

As a child, sometimes I think a lot about myself.  I think about what I want and would like people to spend their lives pleasing me.

As an adult, sometimes I act like a child.  I become so absorbed in myself and what I'd like that I forget about the needs of others.  I take them for granted, and often ignore their needs.

Help me think more about others.  Help me remember that others have problems too.  Help me respond to them even when I'm busy or preoccupied with my own problems.

My Jesus, Who didst comfort the pious women of Jerusalem who wept to see Thee bruised and torn, comfort my soul with Thy tender pity, for in Thy pity lies my trust.  May my heart ever answer Thine.
