PILATE CONDEMNS JESUS TO DIE
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 Jesus Christ, after being scourged and crowned with thorns, was unjustly condemned by Pilate to die on the cross. (Kneel)
R: Jesus, we ask that You call young men and women today to publicly accept Your invitation to follow You in spite of what others may think or say. Give to them a passion for reaching out through Your love to the needs of Your brothers and sisters.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be…)
Through her heart, His sorrow sharing / All His bitter anguish bearing / Now at length the sword has passed
