Jesus Bears His Cross
The people wanted to crucify Jesus.
Pontious Pilate did not want to crucify Him.
He tried everything he could think of to change the crowd's mind but nothing worked.
He washed his hands in front of the crowd saying, "This is a righteous man."
He gave Jesus to the soldiers to be crucified.
Dear Jesus, you carried your cross. You knew it wouldn't be easy, but you carried it just the same. Sometimes I get upset with the troubles that I have. Sometimes I get upset when people ask me to do things for them. I don't want to carry my cross. Give me the courage to carry my cross as You did.
Mary, help me to see Jesus in all things.
Almighty Father, Jesus carried His cross without complaint. When I am tempted to complain, help me to remember Jesus and the cross He carried for me. This I ask through Christ Our Lord. Amen
