The First Station
Jesus Condemned to Death
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider how Pilate condemned the innocent Jesus to death, and how thy Redeemer submitted to this sentance, to free thee from the sentence of everlasting death.
O Jesus! I thank Thee for all Thou hast suffered in order to redeem me; and I beseech The, grant that I may prepare myself to receive worthily, in holy Communion, the body which Thou hast given for me. Take up Thy abode forever in my soul.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father. Jesus Christ Crucified, have mercy on us!
