JESUS SPEAKS TO THE WOMEN
V: We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You. (Genuflect)
R: Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world. (Rise)
V: Consider how the women wept with compassion seeing Jesus so distressed and dripping with blood as He walked along. Jesus said to them, "Weep not so much for Me, but rather for Your children.'' (Kneel)
R: Jesus, remove any prejudices or biases from all whom You call to walk with You as priests or in the consecrated life. Let those who follow You see that all God’s people are created equal, male and female, regardless of race or culture, and that our heavenly Father has no favorites. Let their words and example speak of Christ’s justice, peace and joy.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...)
O sweet Mother! Fount of Love / Touch my spirit from above / Make my heart with yours accord.
