The Fifth Station Society
And as they led him away, they laid hold of one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country; and they laid the cross on him to carry after Jesus.
–Luke 23:26 DRA
We all carry crosses, and for those struggling with infertility and loss, the cross can be particularly heavy. But this burden need not be carried alone. We can be “a Simon” for each other! On the Way of the Cross, we pray through Jesus’ walk on the difficult path to Golgotha and His crucifixion. Each “station” tells the story of this walk, and at the Fifth Station, when Jesus is at His weakest and can no longer carry His Cross alone, Simon of Cyrene is pressed into service. At the Fifth Station, Simon comes alongside Jesus and takes some of the weight on himself. As a member of The Fifth Station Society monthly giving program, you will be an integral part of Springs in the Desert’s ministry and our mission to help alleviate some of the weight of the cross of infertility and loss. Join us today—and be a Simon to those who need your help along their path. Have questions? Learn more below!
