We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Genuflect)
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
I bared my back to those who beat me. I did not stop them when they insulted me, when they pulled out the hairs of my beard and spat in my face. But their insults cannot hurt me because the Sovereign Lord gives me help. I brace myself to endure them. I know that I will not be disgraced. (Isaiah 50:6-7)
O Jesus, may the contemplation of your sufferings move us with the deepest compassion, make us to hate our sins, and kindle in our hearts more fervent love to you. May your image be graven on our minds, until we are transformed into your likeness.
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.
Brave but trembling came the woman,
None but she would flaunt the Roman,
Moved by love beyond her fear.
( The Seventh Station… )
