V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy Holy Cross, Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider how these women wept with compassion at seeing Jesus
in such a pitiable state, streaming with blood, as he walked
along. But Jesus said to them: "Weep not for Me, but for yourselves
and for your children."
LET US PRAY
My Jesus, laden with sorrows, I weep for the offenses I have
committed against You, because of the pains they have deserved, and
still more because of the displeasure they have caused You, who has
loved me so much. It is Your love, more than the fear of hell,
which causes me to weep for my sins. My Jesus, I love You more
than myself; I repent of having offended You. Never permit me to
offend You again. Grant that I may love You always; and then do with
me what You will.
Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Dear Jesus, by the merits of your passion and cross, we present to you all our petitions.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
