Leader: We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
All: Because by your holy cross You have redeemed the world.
soldiers notice you have something of value. They remove your cloak and throw dice for it. Your wounds are torn open once
again. Some of the people in the crowd make fun of you. They tease you and challenge you to perform a miracle for them to
see. They're not aware that you'll perform the greatest miracle of all!
As a child, sometimes I'm tempted to repeat
stories I know are unclean and disrespectful. I sometimes try to act grown up by using crude and bad words.
As an adult,
sometimes I repeat stories that are disrespectful of others. I can entertain thoughts that are not clean. Sometimes I give
the young people around me a bad example to follow.
Help me to keep myself pure and clean. Help me say things that
build up the people around me. Help me overcome worldly desires that I may become more like Jesus. Help me set a good example
for others to follow.
My Jesus, stripped of Thy garments and drenched with gall, strip me of love for things of earth,
and make me loathe all that savors of the world and sin.
Our Father.... Hail Mary.... Glory be to the Father....
- Jesus Christ Crucified.
All - Have mercy on Us.
Leader - May the souls of the faithful departed, throught the mercy
of God, Rest in peace.
All - Amen.
