Station III


Way of the Cross - Station 3

We adore You, O Christ and we bless You, because by Your holy cross You have redeemed the world.


Lord Jesus:  The next station is a fall. How much priestly falls hurt Me. All human sins do not hurt Me much as yours do, priest. My Heart has given itself to priests and in them, I am well pleased. Their betrayals cost Me My life and I still cannot heal the wound of My Heart, because again, I am betrayed and wounded anew.

I fell for the first time because the thought of all these sufferings, which would come on My Heart, paralyzed Me with pain. Is it worth it to suffer and love so much, meaning so little to those I have chosen? Will they, like Me on My way of the cross, fight with all their might to hold the cross in their hands? Will temptation prevail in their hearts and they will forsake the cross, and Me together with it? I was left alone with My cross and hence I fell. I had no one to lean on. I am surrounded by egoists who sell My love for a handful of sinful consolations. However, I rise up in order to plead for strength for you. Without My grace, no one is capable of conversion and faithfulness. So I am pleading for this grace for you as I rise up, because the faith that love will win in your heart is My strength, thanks to which I rise up. Take My strength from this station, because I obtained it then for you.

Our Father …
Hail Mary …
Glory be …
Have mercy on us, O Lord.
Have mercy on us.
