The Ninth Station: Let
us meditate on Jesus falling the third time.
The Lord saved the whole world through the Cross.
◘ Jesus Christ, we adore You and praise You.
The Lord of Love Who stood up again with all His
remaining energy for the fulfillment of the Father's Will and for the
salvation of the human race, even after miserably thrown down on the
ground together with the Cross!
○ Lord, with Your Body torn miserably and covered
with blood all over, You again fell carrying not only the weight of the
heavy Cross but also the sins of the whole human race. You suffered the
pains because of my sins.
● The Lord was struggling to stand up again with all
His remaining energy under the heavy Cross, but He fell again together
with the Cross and was thrown down on the ground with the Cross. Even
while suffering these pains, He offered them up for the conversion of
sinners and the salvation of the human race. How can it not be deplorable
if we do not repent our sins? Help us become children who console the
Lord and the Blessed Mother by gracefully offering up the sorrows, pains,
agonies, anguishes, and distresses given to us, while meditating deeply on
the miserable sufferings by the Lord. (Meditate for a while.)
○ "It was a gruesome pain for this Mother, unable
even to look with open eyes, when my Son Jesus was walking on the terrible
Way of the Cross to Calvary receiving all kinds of ridicules, with His
Body covered with blood from head to feet because of scourging, exhausted
and worn out, and falling miserably with the Cross. It was a pain of my
whole body becoming torn apart and all of its bones being crushed. That
was not all! The sounds of a hammer nailing my Son Jesus to the Cross
gave me the pains of my whole body being hit with a hammer, and the spear
piercing the side of the Lord hanging on the Cross caused me an extreme
pain of my Heart being pierced and crushed.
I, who was
the Mother but was unable to do anything before the miserable condition
(of the Lord), have walked the Way of Calvary, which Jesus walked shedding
blood, day after day since that day, praying earnestly to God the Father
for the conversion of sinners. Even now, two thousand years later, I am
still walking with you"
(The Blessed Mother's message on March 28, 2002).
Let us all remain awake and become the apostles of
the Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart who sew up the torn Hearts of Jesus
and the Blessed Mother by always being awake and converting our lives into
prayers every day and at every moment, following the words of the Blessed
Our Father, Hail Mary,
and Glory be.
◘ Mother, we ask you to engrave the Lord's Wounds
deeply into our hearts.
