Stations of the Cross

Opening Prayer.
Lord Jesus, I stand before your crucified image again today.
Through the contemplation of your Passion,
may I receive the hope I need to follow you throughout my life.

Station I. Jesus is condemned to death.
We adore you, oh Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
Lord, in union with you, I thank Our Father for giving me another day of life. Help me to realise, that to sincerely follow you, I must be willing to die to my own selfishness today and always.
Station II. Jesus accepts his cross.
We adore you, oh Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
Lord, you are my shepherd. Guide me throughout my life. Don’t let me be overcome with evil. Give me such a love for you that I will joyfully accept the cross as it mysteriously manifests itself to me.

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.Veronica was a valiant woman, Lord. She was not afraid to admit her love for you in the middle of a jeering crowd. When I want to hide in the crowd, give me the courage to come forth and profess my loyalty to you.Top of page

Station 8 VIII. Jesus comforts the women of Jerusalem.We adore you, oh Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.Lord, I get so wrapped up in my own little world. Give me your eyes that I may penetrate the hearts of other people. Give me your ears that I may hear their silent yearnings. Give me your heart that I may unselfishly love them.Top of page
Station 9IX. Jesus fall the third time under the cross.We adore you, oh Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.You are my hope, Lord. You could have given up after that third fall. Instead, you got up and went on to your glory. Every day throughout my life never let the defeatist’s words, “What’s the use.” Be on my lips.Top of page
Station 10X. Jesus is stripped of his clothing.We adore you, oh Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.Lord, when they stripped you, you did not cling to your dignity. You allowed them to treat you as the fool of Jerusalem. If others laugh at me, don’t let me respond with a proud intolerance. Help me to laugh at myself.Top of page
Station 11XI. Jesus is nailed to the cross.We adore you, oh Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.It was not easy for you, Lord, when they threw you down on that cross. It is centuries since that happened; yet it is still easy to hear the sound of the hammer banging the nails, which dug into your flesh. Help me to hear the sounds of the nails that are digging into the flesh of so many of your followers. They are the nails of hunger, persecution, loneliness and war. Show me the way and give me strength to pull out these nails.

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.Lord, the consuming desire of your life was to do Our Father’s will. You drank the cup of obedience even to your last breath. Today, show me Our Father’s will. Let me cry out with you – “Not my will, but yours be done.”Top of page

Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.Your agony was over, Lord. Now your cold body was laid in the warm arms that once cradled you at Bethlehem. Fill my heart with the peaceful resignation that Mary had as she held you that Friday afternoon. When death comes to a friend or
relative, give me resignation and eternal insight.Top of page
