The Ninth Station
Jesus Falls the Third Time
V. We adore Thee, O Christ, and we bless Thee.
R. Because by Thy holy cross Thou hast redeemed the world.
Consider how Jesus falls the third time, enduring excruciating pain, to atone for thy obstinacy in continually committing new sins.
O Jesus! now I am firmly resolved to give up sin forever, so as not to cause Thee new suffering. Strengthen me in this my resolution, and by Thy grace make it efficacious.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father. Jesus Christ Crucified, have mercy on us!
