Second Station - Jesus Carries His Cross
John 19:16-17: The soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). Jesus commits to the way chosen for him.
Athletes takes up their cross daily when they welcome the monotony of some practices, the repetitions of scouting reports, the dullness of drills. At times these kinds of exercises can seem boring, routine and meaningless but they are a part of my commitment to being an athlete. How can you accept the, at times, monotony and dullness of sports?
All: "Help me Jesus to embrace with courage my daily tasks, especially the ones that are burdensome.
