Jesus is Condemned to Death

V=> (genuflecting) We adore You, O Christ, and praise You.

R=> Because by your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.

Consider how Jesus, after having been scourged and crowned with thorns, was unjustly condemned by Pilate to die on the Cross.

MY loving Jesus, it was not Pilate; no, it was my sins that condemned You to die. I beseech You, by the merits of this sorrowful journey, to assist my soul in her journey towards eternity.

I love You, Jesus, my love, above all things; I repent with my whole heart for having offended you. Never permit me to separate myself from you again. Grant that I may love you always; and then do with me what you will.

Stabat Mater dolorosa  

Juxta crucem lacrymosa

Dum pendebat Filius                           


  At the Cross her station keeping,

Stood the mournful Mother weeping

Close to Jesus to the last.
