The Characters in the Story Simon of Cyrene

Responses are from a liturgy used on Iona- Wildgoose Publications

Where Christ Walks                     We will follow

Where Christ stumbles                We will stop

Where Christ cries                       We will listen

Where Christ suffers                   We will hurt

When Christ dies                          We will bow our heads in Sorrow

When Christ rises again in glory We will share his endless joy.

 

I came to Jerusalem for the Passover. I had heard of Jesus Nazareth of course, he was quite a figure. By the time I saw him for the first time he’d been up all night, flogged, beaten and exhausted. And then soldier suddenly grabs me and I find myself carrying the cross for Jesus. Amazing emotions went through me. To help someone can be such an honour; I never knew that before.

Prayer

Heavenly Lord, Simon never volunteered to help Jesus. Help us to always look to help others before we are asked that we may help carry other people’s anxieties and ease their burden.
