JESUS FALLS THE SECOND TIME
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 second fall of Jesus under His cross renews the pain in all the wounds of the head and members of our afflicted Lord. (Kneel)
R: Jesus, teach those You call to the priesthood and consecrated life to accept their own and others’ limitations, relying on God’s merciful grace. Help them in these times of darkness to reach out especially to those whom the world calls “fallen” — persons who are addicted, imprisoned, poor, aged, of ill health.
(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be...)
For the sins of His own nation / Saw Him hang in desolation / Till His spirit forth He sent.
