In the name of the Father
We adore you O Christ and we bless you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the World.
First Station Jesus Condemned to Death
O Jesus! so humble and uncomplaining, teach me acceptance in trials.
Second Station Jesus Carries His Cross
My Jesus, this Cross should be mine, not yours; my sins crucified you.
Third Station Our Lord Falls the First Time
O Jesus! by this first fall, never let me fall into mortal sin.
Fourth Station Jesus Meets His Mother
O Jesus! may no human tie, however dear, keep me from following the road of the Cross.
Fifth Station Simon the Cyrenean Helps Jesus Carry His Cross
Simon unwillingly assisted You; may I with patience suffer all for you.
Sixth Station Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus
O Jesus! You placed your imprint of your holy face upon Veronica’s veil; place your face also permanently upon my heart.
Seventh Station The Second Fall of Jesus
By Your second fall, protect me, dear Lord, from relapse into sin.
Eighth Station Jesus Consoles the Women of Jerusalem
My greatest consolation would be to hear You say: “Your many sins are forgiven, because you have loved much.”
Ninth Station Third Fall of Jesus
O Jesus! when exhausted upon life’s long journey, may You be my strength and my perseverance.
Tenth Station Jesus Stripped of His Garments
My soul has been robbed of its robe of innocence; clothe me, dear Jesus, with the garb of penance and contrition.
Eleventh Station Jesus Nailed to the Cross
You forgave Your enemies; my God, teach me to forgive injuries and FORGET them.
Twelfth Station Jesus Dies on the Cross
You are now dying, Jesus, but Your Sacred Heart still burns with love for Your sinful children.
Jesus Taken Down from the Cross
Receive me into your arms, O Sorrowful Mother; and obtain for me perfect contrition for my sins.
Jesus is laid in the tomb
When I receive You in my heart, O Jesus, make it a fit abiding place for Your endearing Body. Amen.
Let us pray:
Almighty and eternal God, merciful Father, who have given to the human race Your beloved Son as an example of humility, obedience, and patience, to precede us on the way of life, bearing the cross: Graciously grant us that we, inflamed by His infinite love, may take up the sweet yoke of His Gospel together with the mortification of the cross, following Him as His true disciples, so that we shall one day gloriously rise with Him and joyfully hear the final sentence:
“Come, you blessed of My Father, and possess the kingdom which was prepared for you from the beginning,” where You no reign with the Son and the Holy Spirit, and where we hope to reign with You, world without end. Amen.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.
