The Way of the Cross
Station #11: Jesus is nailed to the cross.
We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because by Your Holy Cross You
have redeemed the world.
My Lord Jesus Christ:
I, too, have been nailed; help me to accept my crucifixion with an awareness of being intimately united to You. When others have unjustly accused me, they have nailed me to Your Holy Cross. When others have demanded from me what was difficult or unpleasant to give, they have nailed me again. Usually, I struggle to come down off that Cross; help me to discover the sweetness of being joined to Your redemptive suffering, so that I more readily choose the way of love instead of the easier road of selfishness.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Start the music and sing:
who for all my sins was slain,
who for me in torments died.
