Stations of the Cross (Way of the Cross) – Twelfth Station
Stations of the Cross, Twelfth Station – Prayer for the Twelfth Station of the Cross – Before the Thirteenth Station.
Jesus Dies on the Cross
V=> (genuflecting) We adore You, O Christ, and praise You.
R=> Because by your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
Consider how Jesus, being consumed with anguish after three hours’ agony on the cross, abandoned Himself to the weight of His body, bowed His head and died.
O MY dying Jesus! I kiss devoutly the Cross on which You did die for love of me. I have merited by my sins to die a miserable death, but your death is my hope. By the merits of Your death, give me grace to die embracing Your feet, and burning with love for You. I commit my soul into your hands.
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.
Tui Nati vulnerati,
Tam dinati pro me pati,
Penas mecum divide.
Let me share with you His pain,
Who for all my sins was slain,
Who for me in torments died.
ELEVENTH STATION: Jesus is nailed to the Cross
