6th station


I adore Thee O Christ
and I bless Thee

Because by Thy holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world

As Jesus proceeds, covered with the sweat of death, a woman, moved with compassion, makes her way through the crowd, and wipes his face with a veil. The impression of his sacred countenance is said to have been imprinted upon the veil.

Meditate a while in silence

O Jesus,may the contemplation of thy sufferings move me with the deepest compassion, make me to hate my sins, and kindle in my heart more fervent love to thee. May thy image be graven on my mind, until I am transformed into thy likeness. 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
