We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Genuflect)
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
A large crowd of people followed him; among them were some women who were weeping and wailing for him. Jesus turned to them and said, “Women of Jerusalem! Don’t cry for me, but for yourselves and your children. For the days are coming when people will say, ‘How lucky are the women who never had children, who never bore babies, who never nursed them!’ That will be the time when people will say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Hide us!’ For if such things as these are done when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?” (Luke 23:27-31)
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.
Make me feel as you have felt,
Make my soul to glow and melt,
With the love of Christ, my Lord.
