Stations of the Cross

The 7th Station
Jesus falls the second time beneath his Cross

7th station


I adore Thee O Christ
and I bless Thee

Because by Thy holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world

The pain of his wounds and the loss of blood increasing at every step of his way, again his strength fails him,
and Jesus falls to the ground a second time.

Meditate a while in silence

O Jesus, who didst fall a second time beneath the burden of my sins and of thy sufferings for my sins, how often have I grieved thee by my repeated falls into sin! O may I rather die than ever offend thee again! 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
