Leader:
We adore you O Christ and praise you.


People:
Because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.


Leader:
Several woman now break out from the crowd and fall at the feet of Jesus, weeping. Before he is forced to pass them by, he speaks to them, telling them not to weep for him but for themselves and for their children. For if those who hate the Light do not recognize who Christ is and kill him, what will those enemies do to other innocents when he is gone?


People:
Lord, your warning strikes a chord of truth in our lives, for we live in a world that does not honor you nor the values you stood for, a world of

– wars and terrorism
– indiscriminate violence and random murder
– lying and cheating on small and massive scales
– drug and alcohol additions.

These are only some of the sins afflicting us, and yes, we weep for they cause us great pain. Deliver us from these horrors, save us from these agonies. 


Leader:
For the Light shines in the darkness.


People:
Death shall have no victory.


ALL:
Jesus remember me.
