Stations of the Cross (Way of the Cross) – Ninth Station
Stations of the Cross, Ninth Station – Prayer for the Ninth Station of the Cross – Before the Tenth Station.
Jesus Falls the Third Time
V=> (genuflecting) We adore You, O Christ, and praise You.
R=> Because by your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
Consider the third fall of Jesus Christ. His weakness was extreme, and the cruelty of His executioners excessive, who tried to hasten His steps when He could scarcely move.
MY outraged Jesus, by the merits of the weakness You did suffer in going to Calvary, give me strength to conquer all human respect, and my wicked passions, which have led me to despise Your friendship.
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.
Eja, Mater, fons amoris,
Me sentire vim doloris
Fac, ut tecurn lugeam.
O you Mother! Fount of love
Touch my spirit from above
Make my heart with your accord.
