STATION 13: Jesus Is Taken Down From The Cross

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because by Your Holy Cross You have redeemed the world.

My Lord Jesus Christ:

Who will take me down from my Cross of sufferings? Dying to all that is sinful in me, will I have loved ones to care about me and to give me rest? Yes! The Blessed Mother knows who I am and what I have done, because my love for You as connected me to her. She wept over Your sufferings, and yet she was pleased that You had followed the Father's plan. So, too, she weeps with me in my sufferings and she is pleased with me for obeying the Father's call to love others unconditionally. Help me to find rest in her motherly care.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

By the Cross with You to stay
there with You we weep and pray
Is all I ask of You to give.
