The Way of the Cross
Station #12: Jesus dies on 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:
At long last, Your pain ended when you finished exhaling Your final breath. In death, there was peace. In death, Your torments ceased and Your tormentors could do no more to hurt You. I want to die with You. I want to die to all my selfishness, all my uncaring tendencies, all my desires and decisions and control, so that what remains is only Your love at work in me. Thank You for accepting this prayer. I am in Your hands. I am in Your heart.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Start the music and sing:
mourning Him Who mourned for me,
all the days that I may live.
