NARRATOR 1. HAVE YOU SHARED TODAY? “Jesus we honour you.” Response:“Thank you Lord Jesus for all you have done for us.”
What is my weakness? Am I selfish, not prepared to share, not just to give a little of my sweets or lunch but share it all. Am I willing to share my toys or other things, my time and talents? As an adult am I willing to share with those in need as we encourage our children to do? Each time when I try to do so but fail through my own weakness I fall with Jesus.
NARRATOR 2. It was Jesus’ weakness that caused him to fall again. Simon was helping him to carry the cross. Veronica had wiped the blood out of his eyes, but he still had to battle to find enough strength to struggle on to his death and our salvation.
LEADER: PRAY AND SING. Father, your son fell on his journey and showed us that our weaknesses are what make us human, but our will to learn to overcome them makes us like Jesus.
Pope Francis: Lord Jesus we turn to you filled with shame, before your supreme love, shame to leave you alone to suffer for our sins.
