ST FAUSTINA’S STATIONS OF THE CROSS

10 Mar

Begin each station with:

“Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for my sins and those of the whole world.”

• FIRST STATION
Jesus is condemned to death

My Jesus, so meek and uncomplaining, teach me resignation in trials. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• SECOND STATION
Jesus carries His Cross

My Jesus, this Cross should be mine, not Yours: my sins crucified You. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• THIRD STATION
Our Lord falls for the first time

My Jesus, by this first fall, never let me fall into mortal sin. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• FOURTH STATION
Jesus meets His Mother

My Jesus, may no human tie, however dear, keep me from following the road of the Cross. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• FIFTH STATION
Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry His Cross

Simon unwillingly assisted You; may I with patience suffer all for You. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• SIXTH STATION
Veronica wipes the Face of Jesus

My Jesus, You did imprint Your Sacred features upon Veronica’s veil; stamp them indelibly upon my heart. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• SEVENTH STATION
The second fall of Jesus

By Your second fall, preserve me, dear Lord, from relapse into sin. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• EIGHTH STATION
Jesus consoles the women of Jerusalem

My greatest consolation would be to hear You say: “Many sins are forgiven You, because You have loved so much.” Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• NINTH STATION
Third fall of Jesus

O Jesus, when weary upon life’s long journey, be my strength and my perseverance. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• TENTH STATION
Jesus is stripped of His garments

My soul has been robbed of its robe of innocence; clothe me, dear Jesus, with the garb of penance and contrition. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• ELEVENTH STATION
Jesus is nailed to the Cross

You forgave Your enemies; my God, teach me to forgive mine. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• TWELFTH STATION
Jesus dies on the Cross

You are dying, my Jesus, but Your Sacred Heart still throbs with love for Your sinful children. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• THIRTEENTH STATION
Jesus is taken down from the Cross

Receive me into your arms, O Sorrowful Mother; and obtain for me perfect contrition for my sins. Ask your Son to have mercy on me and on the whole world.

• FOURTEENTH STATION
Jesus is laid in the Sepulchre

When I receive You into my heart in Holy Communion, O Jesus, make it a fit and abiding place for Your Adorable Body. Have mercy on me and on the whole world.
