in love you sent your Son
that we might be cleansed of sin
and live with you forever.
Bless us as we gather to reflect
on his suffering and death
that we may learn from his example
the way we should go.
We ask this through that same Christ, our Lord.
Say before each Station:
V. We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
R. Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
Say after each Station:
1 Our Father
1 Hail Mary
1 Glory Be
R. Lord Jesus, help us walk in your steps.
O Jesus, just as Simon relieved You of Your burden, inspire us also to console You by our prayers of reparation and love.
V. Lord Jesus Christ,
your passion and death is the sacrifice that unites earth and heaven
and reconciles all people to you.
May we who have faithfully reflected on these mysteries
follow in your steps and so come to share your glory in heaven
where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit
one God, for ever and ever.
