The 1st Station
Jesus is condemned to die

1st station

Matthew 27:11-26


I adore Thee O Christ
and I bless Thee

Because by Thy holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world

Jesus is dragged before Pilate, his back torn with scourges, his head crowned with thorns; and he, who on the last day will judge the living and the dead, is himself condemned to a shameful death.

Meditate a while in silence

It was for my sins, O blessed Jesus thou wast condemned to die.
O grant that I may detest them from the bottom of my heart, and by this repentance obtain thy mercy and pardon. Amen



O God, I love thee with my whole heart and above all things, and am heartily sorry that I have offended thee. May I never offend thee any more. O may I love thee without ceasing, and make it my delight to do in all things thy most holy will. Amen

The Lord's Prayer...

Have mercy upon me, O Lord
Have mercy upon me

May the souls of the faithful
to the mercy of God
rest in peace. Amen
