Stations of the Cross Photoessay - 3 - Jesus falls for the first time

Statue is the head of the Pharaoh Ramses after it had fallen down at some point, in Abu Simbel, Egypt (January 2012). The photo was taken a week before the Eyptian revolution began. People were upset and in a mood for change. What nobody knew was that the entire Egyptian political system was about to collapse.

So we found that the pharoah head had fallen, just as Egypt's president (or head) was about to fall. And, as we progress from Palm Sunday to Good Friday, we see this head laid low. This statue's head, however, is made of stone and dust, and from this dust it shall return. Jesus fell for the first time, but his glory returns and continues. Like Jesus, we get surprised by sudden falls and changes, but the promise that Jesus brings to us endures.
