214.  The Carrying Of The Cross
(Location: The Via Dolorosa; Jerusalem In Judea)

MATTHEW 27:   32 As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the Cross.

MARK 15:   21 A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the Cross.

LUKE 23:   26 As they led Him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the Cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus. 27 A large number of people followed Him, including women who mourned and wailed for Him. 28 Jesus turned and said to them, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me; weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For the time will come when you will say, 'Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!' 30 Then "'they will say to the mountains, "Fall on us!" and to the hills, "Cover us!'" 31 For if men do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?"

Finally Pilate handed Him over to them to be crucified. 17 Carrying His own Cross, He went out to the Place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha).

This is a Sorrowful Mystery of the Rosary
