Stations of the Cross, Eighth Station – Prayer for the Eighth Station of the Cross – Before the Ninth Station.
The Women of Jerusalem Mourn for Our Lord
V=> (genuflecting) We adore You, O Christ, and praise You.
R=> Because by your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
Consider how these women wept with compassion at seeing Jesus in such a pitiable state, streaming with blood as He walked along. “Daughters of Jerusalem,” said He, “weep not for Me, but for yourselves and for your children”…
MY Jesus, laden with sorrows! I weep for the offences I have committed against You because of the pains they have deserved, and still more because of the displeasure they have caused You, who had loved me so much. It is Your love more than the fear of hell, which causes me to weep for my sins.
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.
Vidit suum dulcem Natum
Dum emisit spiritum.
For the sins of His own nation
Saw Him hang in desolation,
Till His spirit forth He sent.
