Lenten Reflections: Stations of the Cross, Station 8

Station #8: Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem

Written Reflection:

As Jesus continues on the road to his death he sees the people of Jerusalem. He sees the men and the woman. He sees hate, condescending glares, confused stares, and with some of the woman he sees sorrow. He see the hurt, and the women remember his words of hope and compassion.

Jesus looks out and sees their needs, fears, hopes, and desires. In the midst of his own sorrow Jesus sees others. Help me Jesus to remember others. Help me Jesus to pick up my own cross and care for others. Spend time reflecting on this: when have you been too busy or preoccupied to help respond to others? Who can you help today?
