“Why Simon? Why was it him who was forced to undertake this demeaning, disgusting job of helping a condemned man to his place of death? There were numerous other people in the crowd. Why pick on Simon?”

Philip North reflects on the Eighth Station: Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus to carry the cross, with readings and prayers from Paula Gooder.

Today's reading is Luke 23.27-31.
