The Way of the Cross – Station #1

Jesus is condemned to death

Jesus is condemned to death.

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because by Your Holy Cross You
have redeemed the world.

My Lord Jesus Christ:

Your Blessed Mother felt the sting of the sword pierce her heart when her beloved Son was condemned to torture and death. I, too, have felt the pain of being pierced, whenever I am unjustly and cruelly treated, or when I’ve seen it happen to someone I care deeply about. Help me to experience the Mother’s comfort. Help me also to remember in the midst of my pain that You are with me always, and that You will make good come from my sorrows. I offer up my sufferings and unite them to Your Sacred Heart.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Start the music and sing: 

Through her heart, his sorrow sharing,
All his bitter anguish bearing,
Lo! the piercing sword had passed.
