The Fourteenth Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Fourteenth Station

Jesus is taken down from the cross

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
Because by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.

Jesus our Lord, we know this was not the end of the story.  We realize that in your death, you completely destroyed the power of sin and became the first man to turn completely away from selfishness, totally destroying the one obstacle standing in the way.   Your death was not an exit but an entrance, the gateway to the Father and glory!  Now it was just a matter of time before you let all men and women of all time know this.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.
