These were composed by Archbishop Samir Nassar, the Maronite Archbishop of Damascus, and published in the UK’s Catholic Herald. 

From the 4th Station, Jesus Meets His Mother:

Wounded and suffering, carrying the cross of humanity, Jesus meets his mother and the face of all humanity. In this mutual suffering between son and mother a new humanity is born.

O Mary, Mother of God, you saw your son suffer. Help our moms who are deprived of their children, whose children suffer and die alone away from them. In our daily life children and parents are hurting mutually. Help us Lord to transform our families and homelands into spaces of love and serenity in the image of the Holy Family. Amen

Read them all.
