Jesus Consoles the Women of Jerusalem

V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.

The Mystery
Consider how Jesus exhorts these women to weep, not for Him, but for themselves; to teach thee to weep more for thy sins than for His sufferings.

The Prayer
O Jesus! give me tears of true contrition, that the sorrow I feel for Thy sufferings may be profitable to me.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father. Jesus Christ Crucified, have mercy on us!
