Praying the Way of the Cross

Jesus is nailed to the cross

Station XI
Jesus is nailed to the cross

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

SCRIPTURE READING Matthew 27:33-35, 38

Upon arriving at a site called Golgotha (a name which means Skull Place), they gave him a drink of wine flavored with gall, which he tasted but refused to drink. When they crucified him, they divided his clothes among them by casting lots. Two Insurgents were crucified along with him, one at his right and one at his left.

REFLECTION

We must glory in nothing else but in being crucified with Jesus and in bearing the marks of His wounds in our body. We must strive for great detachment from creatures in order to be united only with the Creator, through the various sufferings and pains of life, endured for the love of God, in patience, silence in the midst of all the sacrifices demanded by our state in life, and by practicing the virtues taught by our Divine Savior.

--Saint Paul of the Cross

LET US PRAY

Lord, be appeased by our prayers and graciously conform our will to Your own, even when it wishes to rebel against you. Through Christ our Lord, AMEN.
