Fifth Station of the Cross

Aside

Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry his cross. If one form of anguish is to helplessly witness suffering, imagine the agony of witness that pain and doing nothing to alleviate it. Many do stand to the side doing nothing to reduce the burden of others. Then again, many do see people helplessly suffering and willingly come to their aid. Many times brutality is forced upon us, and many times we can freely choose to be compassionate.
