Jesus Crucified with His Most Blessed Mother Mary

Way of the Cross of Repentance

by Blessed Canon Alfred Weber

tiré de: «De Gethsémani au Golgotha»

 

Preparatory Prayer.

O Jesus! We are going to walk with You on the road to Calvary which was so painful for You. Make us understand the greatness of Your sufferings, touch our hearts with a tender compassion at the sight of Your torments, so that may increase in us the regret of our faults and the love we want to have for You.
Please apply to us all the infinite merits of Your Passion, and in memory of Your sufferings, have mercy on the souls in Purgatory, especially on those who are most abandoned.
O divine Mary, who first taught us to walk the Way of the Cross, obtain for us the grace to follow Jesus with the sentiments with which Your Heart was filled while accompanying Him on the road to Calvary. May we weep with You, and love Your divine Son as You do. We ask this in the name of His adorable Heart. Amen.
