Jesus falls for the first time, the third station. Crosses can be heavy to bear, and many are crushed under the weight of them. To fall can be to be in despair. It is not simply the body that is crushed by a cross, those burdens weigh heavily on the minds and hearts of many who carry them. Think of those in despair, those tormented and suffering the mental anguish of their personal crosses. To fall the first time might land one in a mental institution, but they can only land there if people are compassionate enough to build them. They can only recover from their fall if people are compassionate enough to aid them in their recovery.
