Simon of Cyrene
There are so many times and situations, big and small, in which we are asked to help carry Jesus' cross, and our natural instinct is rejection and repulsion. At times, we might think: "I'm an innocent bystander. Why should have to suffer like this?" Simon was the first to experience that and we can only imagine his own thoughts. Maybe we can think about that any time we face our own cross-bearing moments, from the minor inconveniences to the major crises.
