Jesus carries his cross
Leader: We adore thee, O Christ, and we praise thee.
All: Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.
“They led him out to crucify him”. Mark. 15:21
“I speak from the inside of me… My heart pounds. My stomach sinks. My hands get moist. Reality hits. I told them I would have to suffer and be rejected and be killed, and that it was God’s way. They found that difficult. Do you? I do. I never knew it would be like this. My God, my God, why? I do not take this cross with my own hands to carry it. They put it on me. Heavily. I don’t know if I can bear it.”
