The Seventh Station

Jesus Falls the Second Time

“Though he was in the form of God, he did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.”(Philippians 2:6-8)

 In the film, Christ isn’t an Achilles or a Superman. He doesn’t carry the cross with physical perfection. He falls over and over again. How often do I make the perfect the enemy of the good in my spiritual life? Do I realize Christ doesn’t expect perfection — but he does expect sacrifice?

Pray this prayer from your heart: Lord Jesus, I long to finally learn the lesson of your humility. Help me always to struggle to become more holy — even when I fall again and again. Amen.

Pray one of each prayer: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
