The Way of the Cross


Adapted from St. Alphonsus Liguori

Before visiting the Stations, let each one make an act of contrition and form the intention of gaining the indulgences, whether for himself or for the souls in purgatory.



My Lord Jesus Christ, Thou hast made this journey to die for me with love unutterable, and I have so many times unworthily abandoned Thee; but now I love Thee with my whole heart, and because I love Thee I repent sincerely for every having offended Thee. Pardon me, my God, and permit me to accompany Thee on this journey. Thou dost go to die for love of me; I wish also, my beloved Redeemer, to die for love of Thee. My Jesus, I will live and die always united to Thee


Stabat Mater dolorosa At the cross her station keeping,
Juxta crucem lacrymosa, Stood the mournful Mother weeping,
Dum pendebat Filius. Close to Jesus to the last.
