The Second Station
Jesus Laden with the Cross
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider how Jesus took upon His shoulders on the cross, which thy many sins made so heavy.
O Jesus! grant me the grace not to make Thy cross heavier by new sins, and cheefully to carry mine in a true spirit of penance.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father. Jesus Christ Crucified, have mercy on us!
