Stations of the Cross

Second Station

Jesus Takes Up His Cross

Jesus did not passively accept his fate. He actually used his last bit of strength to engage his circumstances, by carrying his own cross.

For Reflection

How have you been passive to your circumstances during this time? Or, how have you chosen to actually participate with them?


As you reflect on ways you’ve taken up, or not taken up your cross during this time, take one of the crosses from the box below. Keep it in your pocket or purse as a reminder and as encouragement to persevere.


When you’re ready, offer this prayer and move to the next station. map

We adore you, O Christ and we bless you. Because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world. Amen.
