SITE INFO


THE THIRD STATION.  Jesus falls the first time

On the way!
Victims and executioners together set off towards Calvary.
God, whom they drag by the neck,
suddenly stumbles and falls to the ground.
What do you say, Lord, of this first fall?
How do you find this earth which you made?
Ah!  it is not only the good way that is hard.
The way of evil is also treacherous and steep!
You do not enter it straight on;
you must learn it stone by stone,
and your foot often stumbles,
though your heart perseveres.
