Stations of the Cross Photoessay - 5 - Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry the cross

Statue is the "He's not heavy, he's my brother" statue from Boy's Town in Omaha, Nebraska (August 2008) 

He's not heavy. He's my brother. Simon doesn't let the weight of the cross scare him away. Nor does he have a familiar relationship with Jesus. He helped Jesus without being asked. Likewise, these orphan boys in this statue may or may not be actual brothers. But they are brothers in heart, in spirit, in humanity. Like Simon, we can ignore the weight if we love each other as brothers.
