SECOND STATION / ZIMBABWE

JESUS CARRIES HIS CROSS

II   STATION /ZIMBABWE

The Cross of Jesus came as a result of him having done anything wrong, instead it was because of some greedy, power hungry people. Those who never accepted the good for others. Despite all this, Jesus still accepted the pain and suffering for the good of others.In Zimbabwe many a people work up to the reality of the cross, as most people are suffering. Cash Crisis which results in long winding queues at Banks, food prices ever on the rise which makes the majority live below the poverty-datum-line, to hospitals with no essential medicines and specialist staff gone to greener pastures, to roads not serviced nor repaired, lack of clean water supply and electricity hardly available. Unlike Jesus, each one is concerned about their own cross, no time to carry the cross for others. No one wants to carry the trouble of the neighbour.

PRAYER

Dear Jesus, out of Love you carried the cross for us. We commend to you all the suffering Citizens of Zimbabwe, the many economic refugees who are living away from home, those unjustly imprisoned for a crime they know not or on trumped up charges, the sick who are in Hospitals without proper care and the hungry who are going without food every day. Help us to be like you, to be able to carry each other’s troubles, to stand by the suffering and to give a voice to the voiceless. Amen

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory be…
