3rd Station: Jesus Before the Sanhedrin

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

The High Priest stood up in front of them all and questioned Jesus, “Have you no answer to the accusation they bring against you?” But Jesus kept quiet and would not say a word. Again the High Priest questioned him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed God?” Jesus answered: “I am, and you will all see the Son of Man seated on the right of the Almighty and coming with the clouds of heaven!” The High Priest tore his robes and said, “We don’t need any more witnesses! You heard his blasphemy. What is your decision?” They all voted against him: he was guilty and should be put to death. (Mark 14:55-64)

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.

Christ above in torment hangs,
She beneath beholds the pangs,
Of her dying glorious Son.

( The Fourth Station… )
