STATION 8: Jesus Comforts The Women

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

My Lord Jesus Christ:

You are not too busy or too far away to give me comfort. When I am in the midst of my difficulties, it seems like I'm all alone. It feels like You've abandoned me. But in truth, You are always with me. Help me to remember to turn to You whenever I am suffering, whenever I am upset, whenever I need a shoulder to cry on. You are the only true source of joy and peace; teach me to seek these only from You, and then I will experience joy in the midst of sorrow and peace in the midst of turmoil.

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

O' sweet Mother! Fount of Love,
Touch my spirit from above
Make my heart with yours accord.
