Eighth Station: Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

Station VIII Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

Station VIII Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

PRAYER

Leader: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
All: Because by your holy cross You have redeemed the world.

Jesus, 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 are 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 remembers 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.

Our Father…. Hail Mary…. Glory be to the Father….

Leader: Jesus Christ Crucified.
All: Have Mercy on Us.
Leader: May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest in peace.
All: Amen.

Heart touching devotional song narrating about the station in this video is written by Fr. Abel C.M.I. in Malayalam Language of Kerala State, India. All viewers may not understand the meaning of the lyrics, but the music will surely touch your heart. This video also contain short narration and images of some of the places like, Gethsemane, Golgotha, Jerusalem, Tomb of Jesus etc. These informations and images are collected from Internet. I am not sure about the correctness of the same. Aim of the video is to make the people to think about the burdens and sorrows Jesus took for us.

If possible, it is good to pray and meditate Way of the Cross daily which will give peace and happiness in mind and also protect from Satan and Sin.

May the crucified Jesus Bless you and your family.
