Stations of the Cross

The 11th Station
Jesus is nailed to the Cross


John 20:24-27 Colossians 2:13-15


I adore Thee O Christ
and I bless Thee

Because by Thy holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world

The Cross is laid upon the ground, and Jesus is stretched out upon his bed of death. At one and the same time he offers his bruised limbs to his heavenly Father on behalf of sinful man, and to his fierce executioners, to be nailed by them to the tree of shame. The blows are struck; the blood gushes forth.

Meditate a while in silence

O Jesus, nailed to the Cross, fasten my heart there also, that it may be united to thee until death shall strike me with its fatal blow, and with my last breath I yield up my soul to 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

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
