Stations Of The Cross. Jesus Falls The First Time Under The Cross.
This third Station represents how our Lord Jesus Christ, overwhelmed by the weight of the Cross, fainting through loss of blood, falls to the ground the first time. His flesh was torn by the scourges, His head crowned with thorns, and He had lost a great quantity of blood. He was so weakened that He could scarcely walk, and yet He had to carry this great load upon His shoulders. Jesus was fatigued to the point of death. He had not slept since Wednesday night, and had been on His feet for the last fifteen hours. He was hungry, thirsty, and His body, aching from sheer weariness as well as from the wounds of the scourging, was caked with blood and dirt. Above all, His Sacred Heart grieved at the malice, selfishness, and injustice of man. The soldiers struck Him rudely, and thus He felt several times in His journey.
