THE WAY OF THE CROSS

CONCLUDING PRAYER

1st Station – Jesus is condemned to death

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

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

Leaving the house of Caiaphas, where he had been blasphemed, and the house of Herod, where he had been been mocked, Jesus is dragged before Pilate, his back torn with scourges, his head crowned with thorns; and he, who on the last day will judge the living and the dead, is himself condemned to a disgraceful death.

Prayer

It was for us that You did suffer, O Blessed Jesus. It was for our sins that You were condemned to die. Oh, grant that we may detest our sins from the bottom of our hearts, and obtain your mercy and pardon by repentance.

• 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.
