3. Jesus falls the first time


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



Meditation
Consider the first fall of Jesus. Loss of blood from the scourging and crowing with thorns had so weakened Him that He could hardly walk, and yet He had to carry that great load upon His shoulders. The soldiers struck Him cruelly and He fell several times under the heavy cross. My beloved Jesus, it was not the weight of the cross but the weight of my sins which made You suffer so much. By the merits of this first fall, save me from falling into mortal sin.



Prayer
I love You, Jesus, my love; I repent of ever having offended You. Never let me separate myself from You again. Grant that I may love You always; and then do with me as You will.



Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be



Christ above in torment hangs
She beneath beholds the pangs
Of her dying, glorious Son
