Stations of the Cross (Way of the Cross) – Tenth Station
Stations of the Cross, Tenth Station – Prayer for the Tenth Station of the Cross – Before the Eleventh Station.
Jesus is Stripped of His Garments
V=> (genuflecting) We adore You, O Christ, and praise You.
R=> Because by your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
Consider the violence with which Jesus was stripped by the executioners.
His inner garments adhered to His torn flesh, and they dragged them off so roughly that the skin came with them. Compassionate your Saviour thus cruelly treated.
MY most innocent Jesus! By the merits of the torments You have felt, help me to strip myself of all affection to things of earth, that I may place all my love in You, who are so worthy of my love.
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.
Fa cut ardeat cor meaum
In amando Christum Deum,
Ut sibi complaceam
Make me as you had felt
Make my soul to glow and melt
With the love of Christ my Lord.
