Jesus Dies on the Cross
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.
As my Lord hangs upon the cross, the mother of Jesus and I walk to the foot of the cross. I put aside my fear for Mary needs to be near her son. And so we stand and look up in grief as the hope of the world dies. He looks down at Mary and says to his mother, “Woman behold your son,” glancing at me. Then, with eyes of infinite compassion upon me, he says, “Behold your mother.” And he gives her into my care. I see him raise his head and look at you, my friends. Can you see his eyes? Do you hear him speak? What does he say to you?
All kneel briefly in silent meditation.
O Lord, as Blessed Mary and John look up at you, you breathe your last. ”It is finished,” you say. Out of love for us, you have died. You have died to save us from our sins. From our sins you have set us free, hanging there upon the tree, upon the tree at Calvary.
The Light shines in the darkness.
Death shall have no victory.
Jesus remember me.
