The 8th Station
The women of Jerusalem mourn for the Lord

8th station

Luke 23:27-29


I adore Thee O Christ
and I bless Thee

Because by Thy holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world

Some holy women in the crowd openly bewailed and lamented him. Jesus, knowing the things that were to come to pass upon Jerusalem, turned to them and said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but for yourselves and for your children."

Meditate a while in silence

O Lord Jesus, I mourn, and will mourn, both for thee and for myself; for thy sufferings, and for my sins which caused them. O teach me so to mourn that I may be comforted, and escape those dreadful judgements prepared for all who reject or neglect thee in this life. 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
