Lent Day 34 The Seventh Station: Jesus falls a second time.
Think about how we may cause or contribute to others falling under their burdens. When we as a society allow poverty to flourish in a land of plenty; when we underfund our public school; when we fail to provide healthcare to all; when we cut social programs; when we allow racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism and ableism to flourish. May we find ways to help lift up those who fall and in doing so, we help lift up the fallen, living Christ represented in our humanity. Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, have mercy upon us.
