Seventh Station: Jesus carries the cross
Posted on April 8th, 2000
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
John 19: 15-17
They cried out, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” So he delivered him over to them to be crucified.
