10th Station: The Good Criminal

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Genuflect)
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

One of the criminals hanging there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” The other one, however, rebuked him, saying, “Don’t you fear God? You received the same sentence he did. Ours, however, is only right, because we are getting what we deserve for what we did; but he has done no wrong.” And he said to Jesus, “Remember me, Jesus, when you come as King!” Jesus said to him, “I promise you that today you will be in Paradise with me.” (Luke 23:39-43)

Our Father.., Hail Mary.., Glory Be..

Have mercy on us, O Lord.
Have mercy on us.

Holy Mother, pierce me through!
In my heart, each wound renew,
Of my Savior crucified.

Let me share with you his pain,
Who for all my sins was slain,
Who for me in torment died.
