Spiritual Considerations for the Passion of Jesus Countdown (9) ~ We Need a Simon of Cyrene to Help Carry our Crosses

“Grant me, Jesus, the Cross with no Simon of Cyrene to help me. No, that’s not right; I need your grace, I need your help here as in everything. You must be my Simon of Cyrene. With you, my God, no trial can daunt me…

—But what if my Cross should consist in boredom or sadness? — In that case I say to you, Lord, with You I would gladly be sad.”

St. Josemaria Escriva, The Forge, 252.
