VII – Jesus Falls a Second Time

Jesus falls beneath the weight of the cross a second time.

FATHER: We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You. (Genuflect)

RESPONSE: Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world. (Rise)

FATHER: Consider how the second fall of Jesus under His cross renews the pain in all the wounds of the head and members of our afflicted Lord. (Kneel)

RESPONSE: My most gentle Jesus, / how many times You have forgiven me; / and how many times I have fallen again and begun again to offend You! / By the merits of this second fall, / give me the grace to persevere in Your love until death. / Grant, that in all my temptations, I may always have recourse to You. / I love You, Jesus, my Love with all my heart; / I am sorry that I have offended You. / Never let me offend You again. / Grant that I may love You always; and then do with me as You will.

(Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.)


For the sins of His own nation 

Saw Him hang in desolation 

Till His spirit forth He sent.
