The Tenth Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Tenth Station

Jesus is stripped of his garments

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

O Lord, how amazing was your submission to all the cruelty that you would allow this new torture without a word of complaint!   Now it's time for us to speak.   Now it's time for us to have the nerve to stand facing you, facing what we've done to you by our sins.   You stood in the position of the criminal, but we are the ones guilty of the crime - the crime of rejecting your love and turning to our own selfish wants and desires.   We admit it all now.   Help us never to turn away from you again.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.
