Second Station ~ Jesus Receives His Cross
Lying in the wooden manger in the stable of Bethlehem,
Christ welcomed the cross for which He had come into the wold. At that moment of His birth He accepted all the hardship, the pain and suffering of mankind- the cold, the darkness, hunger and thirst; the pain of mind and body, the needs and the dependence of all men. He accepted death - indeed He became man in order to die for men.
Unseen, unknown , Christ received His cross in Bethlehem.
