DAY 9 - APRIL 16

Ninth station: Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem

A large crowd trailed behind, including many grief-stricken women. But Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, don’t weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For the days are coming when they will say, ‘Fortunate indeed are the women who are childless, the wombs that have not borne a child and the breasts that have never nursed. ’People will beg the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and plead with the hills, ‘Bury us.’ For if these things are done when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”(Luke 23:27-31)

Prayer: Lord, grant us gentle spirits that we may comfort those who mourn.

*Pray that we would be a place of peace and comfort for hurting this Easter.
