The Way of the Cross  - The Eleventh Station

Jesus is nailed to the cross

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

O Jesus, it's hard to believe love could be as great as yours.   Here you are - God - and yet you became a man and endured all of this for us.   You completely turned away from what your human body wanted and went along with the will of your Father.   Your Father permitted all of this as part of his plan for rescuing us.   He knew if we ever saw this for what it truly is (a compelling demonstration of infinite love), we would be moved to give you our love in return.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.
