The Twelfth Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Twelfth Station

Jesus dies on the cross

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

Jesus, help us to see, really see, what has happened.   Help us realize that you were the first man to make the trip back home where every man belongs!  Make us never forget that the only way we can get there is by joining ourselves to you, our leader, so that with you we too can die to sin and turn totally to the Father.   We know this will mean some tough going - our own cross - but with you we can do it.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.    
Stations of the Resurrection:  Ascension (Luke 24: 50-53)
