CHOIR PRAYER (usually taken from CAMPION HYMNAL) after attendance:
FIFTH STATION • Simon the Cyrenean Helps Jesus to Carry His Cross
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we praise Thee.
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou has redeemed the world.
It was not merely death sinful men wished Our Blessed Saviour; it was a particular kind of death upon the sign of contradiction. Lest exhaustion and weakness should rob them of unfurling Him as a banner of salvation upon the Cross of Calvary, they forced Simon of Cyrene to help Him with His task. Simon saw in the cross only the burden of wood, but not the burden of the world’s sins, and hence became at first an unwilling aid and a constrained helper. A few minutes, however, in the sweet company of Jesus changed his outlook, slavery became freedom, constraint became love, and reluctance a sweet abandon.
I, too, am like Simon in his first moments: I know about Jesus, but I do not know Jesus. I have feared to be a sharer of His Cross, and hence have loved but little, because I have known only a little. I have too often insisted on beginning with pleasure, when it is with pleasure that I should have ended.
