Royal Road of the Holy Cross

By | February 12, 2010

A book of meditations for the Stations of the Cross has this as part of the meditation for the 3rd station:

“Where are those first infant steps when Mary guided Him on the road of life?

He walked, wee little one, budding fruit of Mary’s womb, and often He fell.

But at that time they were falls of that weakness which is ours, which He wanted to assume; the falls of the child who learns that the roads upon which men walk are not easy roads.

Now again it is a human fall, but under an excessive weight.

And Mary, who smiled in the long ago, today feels her heart within her crushed beneath that same weight.”
Robin, Royal Road of the Holy Cross, 7
