"Jesus Falls the Second Time"

For Jerusalem has stumbled .... Isa 3.8a

As though to emphasise the arduousness of this walk to Calvary
Jesusis described as falling not once or twice but three times, and
the images show each time as worse than the previous one. Did
his falling arouse sympathy; or did onlookers simply jeer louder?

Pray for all whose life feels like a succession of burdens, each one
worse than the last; and that they may receive the sympathy and
support that they need.
