9th Station – Jesus falls beneath His cross the third time

Leader: We adore You, O Christ, and we bless You.

All: Because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.

Jesus has almost arrived at the summit of Calvary, but before he reaches the spot where he is to be crucified, his strength again fails Him, and he falls the third time.

Prayer

O Jesus, we entreat you by the merit of this your third and most painful fall, to pardon our frequent relapses and our long continuance in sin. May the thought of Your sufferings make us hate our sins more and more.

• Our Father

• Hail Mary

• Glory Be

Leader: May the souls of all the faithful departed.

All: Through the mercy of God rest in peace.

May they rest in peace

Amen.
