8. Jesus Meets the Women

STATION VIII

Small Violet Cross

Genuflect:
V: We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You
R: Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.

Eight Station: Jesus meets the Women of Jerusalem.

Stand:
V: Consider that those women wept with compassion at seeing Jesus in so pitiable a state, streaming with blood, as He walked along. But Jesus said to them, “Weep not for Me but for your children.”

Kneel:
All: My Jesus, laden with sorrows, I weep for the offences that I have committed against Thee, because of the pains which they have deserved, and still more because of the displeasure which they have caused Thee, Who hast loved me so much. It is Thy love, more than the fear of hell, which causes me to weep for my sins.

My Jesus, I love Thee more than myself. I repent of having offended Thee. Never permit me to offend Thee again. Grant that I may love Thee always; and then do with me what Thou wilt.

Prayers: Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory be…

V: Lord Jesus Crucified R: Have Mercy on us.

Hymn: Stabat Mater Stanza
Small Violet Cross

All: Sing or Say:
For the sins of His own nation,
She saw Him hang in desolation
until His spirit forth He sent.

V: Have Mercy on Us, O Lord. R: Have Mercy on Us.
