Jesus Dies upon the Cross

V. We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee.
R. Because by thy Holy Cross thou hast redeemed the world.

For three hours has Jesus hung upon his pierced hands; his blood has run down in streams; and in the midst of excruciating sufferings, he has pardoned his murderers, promised the bliss of Paradise to the good thief, and committed his blessed Mother and Beloved Disciple to each other's care. All is now finished; and meekly bowing down his head, he gives up the ghost.

O Jesus! we devoutly embrace that honored cross where thou didst love us even unto death. In that death we place all our confidence. Henceforth let us live only for thee; and in dying for thee let us die loving thee.

Act of Contrition

O God, we love thee with our whole hearts and above all things and are heartily sorry that we have offended thee. May we never offend thee any more. O, may we love thee without ceasing, and make it our delight to do in all things thy most holy will.

OUR Father.
HAIL, Mary

V. Have mercy upon us, O Lord.
R. Have mercy upon us.

+ May the souls of the faithful, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Thou, my Saviour's Cross who bearest,
Thou, thy Son's rebuke who sharest,
Let me share them both with thee.


From pain to pain, from woe to woe,
With loving hearts and footsteps slow
To Calvary with Christ we go.

See how his precious Blood
At every Station pours:
Was ever grief like His?
Was ever sin like ours?
