 12th station

John 19:25-30 Matthew 27:45-54


I adore Thee O Christ
and I bless Thee

Because by Thy holy Cross
Thou hast redeemed the world

For three hours has Jesus hung upon his pierced hands; his blood has run in streams down his body, and bedewed the ground; and in the midst of the most bitter sufferings, he has pardoned his murderers, promised the bliss of paradise to the good thief, and committed his blessed Mother and the beloved disciple to each other's care. All is now finished, and meekly bowing his head, he gives up the ghost.

Meditate a while in silence

O Jesus, we devoutly embrace that honoured Cross, where thou didst love us even unto death. In that death we place all our confidence. Henceforth let us live only for thee; and dying for thee, let us die loving thee, and in thy sacred arms. 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
