The Eighth Station
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.
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.
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!
