9th Station: Jesus Falls the Third Time

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

He was treated harshly,
but endured it humbly;
he never said a word.
Like a lamb about to be slaughtered,
like a sheep about to be sheared,
he never said a word.
He was arrested and sentenced
and led off to die,
and no one cared about his fate.
He was put to death
for the sins of our people.

(Isaiah 52:7-8)

O Lord Jesus, we beg you, by the merits of your third most painful fall, to pardon our frequent relapses and our long continuance in sin; and may the thought of your sufferings make us to hate our sins more and more.

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.

Jesus fell again in weakness,
Stumbling as we do, to lead us,
Through our sorrow and our pain.

( The Tenth Station… )
