Jesus receives the Cross

2nd station

John 19:17


I adore Thee O Christ
and I bless Thee

Because by Thy holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world

A heavy Cross is laid upon the bruised shoulders of Jesus.
He receives it with meekness,
even a secret joy, for it is the instrument with which he is to redeem the world

Meditate a while in silence

O Jesus, grant me, by virtue of thy Cross,
to embrace with meekness
and cheerful submission
the difficulties of my state,
and to be ever ready to take up my cross and follow thee. 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

Hail Mary...
Glory be to the Father...

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
