The Second Station: Jesus Carries His Cross
Leader: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
All: Because by your holy cross You have redeemed the world.

And Pilate said to the Jews, “Behold, your king!” But they cried out, “Away with him! Away with him! Crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your king?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” Then Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified. And so they took Jesus and led him away, bearing the cross for himself. (John 19:14-17)

Jesus, as you accepted your cross, you knew you would carry it to your death on Calvary. You knew it wouldn't be easy, but you accepted it and carried it just the same.
