JESUS ACCEPTS HIS CROSS
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 Jesus as He walked this road with the cross on His shoulders, thinking of us, and offering to His Father on our behalf, the death He was about to suffer. (Kneel)
R: Jesus, help those You call to see in the cross the symbol of union with You. Give to them the zeal and talent to minister to those who are burdened with pain, sorrow, confusion and alienation. Let them see that in the cross is life.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...)
O, how sad and sore depressed / Was that Mother highly blessed / of the sole Begotten One
