We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Genuflect)
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
So they took charge of Jesus. He went out, carrying his cross, and came to “The Place of the Skull”, which in Hebrew it is called “Golgotha”. There they crucified him; and they also crucified two other men, one on each side, with Jesus between them. Pilate wrote a notice and had it put on the cross, which read: “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” (John 19:17-19)
O Jesus! Grant us, by virtue of your cross, to embrace with meekness and cheerful submission the difficulties of our state, and to be ever ready to take up our cross and follow you.
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.
Now the Cross as Jesus bore it,
Has become for us who share it,
The jewelled Cross of Victory.
