O Lord, you who repeatedly suffered unjust insults and impositions, grant, I pray, in the face of every temptation to become indifferent to others’ burdens and to resent the need to carry a burden that is not my own, the humility of Simon of Cyrene who carried a cross that wasn’t his own and who discovered a savior that he did not expect, so that I might see Christ in every act of service on behalf of a stranger. Amen.
